24 Hours in Singapore” by Baek Yeok Kuan

We paid a visit to the Asian Civilisations Museum last week. I love the mirror balls installed on the lawn so had to spend a few minutes with it before we went in.

24 Hours in Singapore is an audio installation that acts as a time capsule capturing sounds of Singapore. With the passage of time, this sculpture will serve as a remembrance of the rich intangible heritage of our daily lives in Singapore circa 2015. The installationโ€™s audio recordings feature familiar sounds of everyday people, places and scenes, from the sounds of the heartlands and MRT trains to the daily chatter in wet markets and coffee shops.

    1. They are so much fun! They all have speakers built into them and they are meant to to play sounds captured from Singapore streets, but I have to say I have never managed to catch the playback. Unless it’s been broken.

    1. They are indeed – I love them! I run past them pretty often and I stop whenever there aren’t too many people crowded around them! Depending on the time of day & weather, they are quite different!
