This series explores how one’s extreme familiarity with his environment can actually become a psychological entrapment. Singapore is so small that as Singaporeans, there is a dearth of novelty or “strangeness” in our surroundings. The series also explores how the Internet is then a medium in which Singaporean youths escape or perceive the world beyond.
The irony is that this dream is nonetheless an artificial construct. What is most revealing is how the Internet keeps us within a search bubble, constructing the way we perceive the world. Images appropriated online are not representative of the places. This reveals the incongruity between what is actual and what is being represented, and how the image is simply a projection.
