Singapore - Insula

2021-ongoing

'I could not forbear getting up to the top of a little mountain, and looking out to sea, in hopes of seeing a ship: then fancy that, at a vast distance, I spied a sail, please myself with the hopes of it, and, after looking steadily, till I was almost blind, lose it quite, and sit down and weep like a child, and thus increase my misery by my folly.'

 

Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe

Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, for almost 2 years now, international travel has been globally disrupted and  border crossing restrictions implemented. Insula aims to explore the concepts of boundary and adaptation by photographing Singapore's geographical limits (its coastal borders), and the reactions and strategies Singapore’s residents have been compelled to fashion to help them cope with the extraordinary events lived during 2020-2022.
