Due to the rapid evolution of technology throughout the 21st century, every street on earth is now captured digitally. People can travel to any part of the world in a technological sense without actually packing their bags and boarding an airplane, as well as read and know everything about the history of a place without having to experience it first-hand. Anyone can learn about countries miles away, much less Singapore.
So what does ‘travelling’ mean from here, and as local artists, what can Artwave tell you about the streets of Singapore that can’t already find on the internet? What about time travelling and experiencing the histories of a street all at once?
In this artwork, listeners take a stroll through an alley while listening to sounds projected by hidden speakers throughout the space. Through this experience, they are sent on a journey through Singapore’s history and gain a deeper understanding of the echoes of Singapore’s past.
