Stored Value

Arduino / Vacuum forming / 3d printing
PVC, Paper, Electronics, PLA

Intrigued that the humble EZ-link card stores not only money but also our trips around Singapore, Stored Value is a metaphor of a Singaporean collective memory emerging from our individual journeys through the everyday sounds that we hear.

The exhibit explores the transience of a Singaporean identity. It is a snapshot of everyday sounds of Singapore that we pay little attention to because of how ordinary it is, but yet evoke specific encounters and memories that tie us to shared experiences
