In all her artworks, Choo has reflected upon the socio-cultural norms of the modern society, highlighting relatable moments and characters. She was inspired by Octovio Paz who stated that the deep-rooted fact of the human condition is solitude, and only Man knows that he is alone and seeks for company. Choo (2014) explained that Singaporeans face a significant phenomenal issue – solitude – despite living in a highly populated society. In her notable work titled ‘The Hidden Dimension II’ (see Figure 1 above), Choo has reflected on this ‘solitude’ phenomenon by questioning how effective the comfort offered by Man’s daily routines is.
