[ISEA2009] Artist Talk: Shannon Lee Castleman – Jurong West Street 81: a synchronised community video project

Artist Statement

The project Jurong West Street 81 revolves around the architecture and residents of a group of Singapore public Housing Development Board (HDB) blocks. The title of the work makes reference to the address of the HDB flats that are the subject of this video installation. The Singapore landscape has changed dramatically over the past forty years with the rapid development of HDB estates and currently, over eighty percent of the Singapore population live in public housing.
