Spaces of Discipline

We shape the city.

The city shapes us.

IMG_20160816_0012 640

We create new possibilities.

But there’re only so many paths you could choose to take.

Sometimes the view surprises us.

Sometimes it stops us from going further.

We have to do the work of philosophy.

To think about what we’re moving, and what moves us.

Urban Space in Singapore

We like to know where we are in urban space.

IMG_20160816_0001 640

We cannot help ourselves.

IMG_20160816_0002 640

We need to know where we are.

IMG_20160816_0016 640

We need space to frame ourselves.

IMG_20160816_0006 640

But space can speak for itself.

IMG_20160816_0009 640

Sometimes we’re simply compelled to look.

IMG_20160816_0010 640

And look again.

Spaces of Beauty

Whenever we’re in Singapore, my children get to attend school there. So they get to see their classmates in Singapore once a year, for a few weeks.

This area is near my daughter’s school.

The reds and greens interact nicely.

So yes, it’s good to carry a film camera wherever I go.

I spent a few mornings thinking about colours and composition.

Things make sense here.

This is everyday Singapore.
