Artists Statement

6 digital photographs, 420 x 594 mm

In a country known as just ‘a little red dot’, can there be enough space for its people and their diverse needs? Multipli-City explores the duality of space-usage in Singapore, a city of just over 700 square kilometres but home to over 4.5 million. By capturing moments of a site at two different times and digitally juxtaposing them together, these photos show how human ingenuity in exploiting the time-space relationship opens up infinite possibilities in a city famous for being highly planned and regulated by the state because of the scarcity of space.  reclaimland.sg
