Through my conversations, I gathered that the Tanglin Halt market and food centre are the heart of this estate to many. These pieces are journeys in and out of this location that stretches across the area, pumping it full of life.

In Taking Routes, the journeys of Tanglin Halt residents, past and present, was the focus of my ongoing study of tracing our overlooked everyday rituals. In this study, the routes were shaped from stories of individuals to create a personalised map of their daily journeys. The subjects revisited memories and shared stories of living and working in the estate, treading the same paths with different intentions, locating common destinations with different routes laid out…
I then took these separate routes and overlaid them to create a combination of courses taken around the estate, each an exploration of the journeys and how they could have interacted with each other. These personal seemingly mundane rituals, combined with my technique of applying repeated layers of HMA, have resulted in the landscapes visualised in this show.
