In Singapore, land is precious. Each plot has been zoned for specific usage, and land use and development is carefully regulated by governmental agencies. Public parks stand as a rare commodity within this carefully structured framework. Being a public venue, it is open to everyone for recreational usage. Yet what defines recreation and who decides if the park and its surroundings can be used for other uses? These public parks thus become social phenomenon in their own right, as nocturnal activities within threaten to overshadow its original intended usage. Privacy in a public space is limited, yet such nocturnal activities dictate a need for secrecy. This photographic project thus aim to take a closer look at the underlying complexity of such venues, particularly in light of an absence of official visual documentation of such places.
