Blk 38 Malan Road, The Single Screen
2021, video, colour, sound, 17 min 37 sec

Filmed in Singapore, earth, land, sky and sea as palimpsest is an invitation to cross thresholds and observe the unobservable: to see with our skin, hear with our feet, and feel our way above and beneath pathless paths. This poetic and multisensorial wandering is interspersed with historical forays into ways in which human activities unfold and affect the earth. Charting inclusive ecologies, the work subtly suggests that, while we are constantly distracted by rapid urban development, many trees are older than our buildings and spiritual landscapes find a way to survive within modern urban infrastructures. earth, land, sky and sea as palimpsest is the first iteration of a namesake research project initiated by Zarina Muhammad and Zachary Chan that engages with environmental histories, extractive capitalist urbanisation, and archival fragments in order to redraw hegemonic cartographies and seek out a more-than-human understanding of our place in the world.
