Care Index has been recently presented at The Esplanade: Theatres by the Bay, The Listening Biennial, Assembly for Permacircular Museums (ZKM Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe), New Season of Care (Asia-Art-Activism) and Presence of Mind (Gallery Lane Cove, NSW, Australia).

Home Visits is Neo’s documentation of Queenstown neighbourhood’s residents and their homes. As part of making this work the artist asked to be invited into these residents' homes to capture these intimate portraits. Queenstown is one of Singapore’s oldest housing estates and is populated by a cross-section of Singaporeans, some of whom have lived in this area all their lives and formed strong social groups, while others are making this place their temporary home. Neo’s images reveal an insider’s peek into the psyche and lives of this small, interconnected community of residents.
