House: Singapore Psychogeographical Society Talk (22 July 2012)

On Sunday I gave a talk at HOUSE PARTY 3, organized by Yuta Nakayama and kindly hosted by Antonio & Alicia at the very amazing roof of a shophouse along Jalan Besar Road. I presented on the various archives of the Singapore Psychogeographical Society.

This is a short 45 minute overview on various archival projects by the "Singapore Psychogeographical Society".

About the Singapore Psychogeographical Society

Since 2010, the Singapore Psychogeographical Society has been devoted to promoting a better understanding of the world through ludic adventures, independent research, digital documentation, and archival activism.

Through “psychogeoforensics”, it encourages people to construct/reconstruct their own narratives around the various physical traces, histories, and archives that may be overlooked or neglected in a fast-developing urban city like Singapore.

You can view the presentation material here on Prezi:

I was also told that the roof was also home to a farm of telecoms signal towers and boxes belonging to Starhub and Singtel! I have always wondered where the telephone towers are located in a city but now I realize the towers are on top of even the private buildings! Looks like I need to read up more about them...
