SEASTATE 1 : inside outside

Inside\outside reverses how we look at what constitutes a nation, borders, what is solid and what changes and how we determine that we are part of a given group or not.

The work is made up of 110 pairs of photographs of the water border markers of Singapore, two maps of Singapore and an internet radio connection of live ship-to-shore transmissions used for navigation in Singapore’s harbours.

First exhibited: YPT, Singapore Art Museum, 2005
