The project aims to create an installation that can redefine the stigma of no good spaces which are often seem as use- less and allow the hidden value in them to be uncovered. The project will highlight such undiscovered micro spaces in Sin- gapore, letting the public view and reflect on the possibilities of inhabitation in such in-between spaces.
The installation draws parallels with Studio Akane Moriyama’s installation by adding a subtle touch to the site. What I did with the porosity and lightness of the Amaike Super Organza fabric is to balance out the user’s ‘territory’ in the space, creating a new sense and perception of scale. What makes the installation ephemeral is the lighting conditions. The different shadows casted through the fabric (faint, overcast and harsh light) sets unformatted bound- aries for inhabitation – the inhabitations are temporal, creating moments that are slightly fleeting.
The heightened bodily experience keeps us aware that such spatial typography can be design opportunities. The project is a tool to identify such spaces; to use the methodology as a lens to make aware that such no good spaces exist and the opportunities it has.
By marking _____________ out the traces of inhabitation noticed, the relationship between our bodies and the space is displayed. The displaying of unscripted inhabitation reveals of the hidden value of in-between spaces.
