The Mountain Survey is an investigation of mountainous landscapes observed at various nature reserves in Singapore. Once a vital source of granite during the building boom in the 1970s, these mountains have since ceased their function and taken on a new identity.
These “Mountains” across Singapore stand as historic testaments and witnesses in the shifts of national agenda. Charting its transformation from material resource to man-made phenomenon; redirecting its surveyor’s gaze from the urban reality to a temporary dream.
This edition of The Mountain Survey has been completely redesigned and revised to fit the artist’s intention, with the help of designer, Gwendolyn Say, as part of A Different Project hosted by THEBOOKSHOW.
