( Images are composites made up of many scanned objects )
If space was to become a place of culture, it had to contain memories. These memories are often found in the object one uses. There is an interplay of relationships that exists between these objects. Without reenacting the activities (eating, gathering, chatting), the memory of the space becomes incomplete. Peeking through her own memories of the fast diminishing hawker centre and old playgrounds in Singapore, the artist uses the scanning method of image capture to emphasize upon the mortality of imageries, adding to a feel of nostalgia towards the impermanence of such spaces within a modern society like Singapore.
The images are respectively titled
- In Time to Come (Hawker Centre / Food Centre)
-An Absent Childhood (Old Bumboat Playground of Singapore)
