THE LAPSE PROJECT
Singapore International Festival of Arts 2018, The Arts House Gallery
Does technology help us to remember, or forget?
As we develop new visions and modes of interaction with Singapore the city, how does our relationship to her monuments change? What constitutes our collective reality?
Toggling between the physical and the imaginary, and responding to the accelerated digitisation of our environment, The Lapse Project imagines a world that is constituted through interfaces where places of artistic and cultural identities become editable, and can just as easily be switched on or off. Through processes of digital manipulation, the multimedia installation "erases" familiar landmarks that now serve as spaces for the arts around Singapore's Civic District – Singapore's oldest building, The Arts House, National Gallery Singapore, National Museum of Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum.
The Lapse Project takes a multi-dimensional approach to question memory, space and legacy through lapses in structure, time, particle, text and image. Visitors are invited to embody these lapses, contemplating the presence and absence of sights and sites
