"Singapore’s HDB void decks are often deemed as a space for plural co-existence. Supposedly, people of different ethnicities, religions, cultures, and age, congregate and socialize in this space. However, as we are moving towards a more globalized and desensitized society, void decks are gradually losing its original purposes.

ABOUT THE FILM

"Singapore’s HDB void decks are often deemed as a space for plural co-existence. Supposedly, people of different ethnicities, religions, cultures, and age, congregate and socialize in this space. However, as we are moving towards a more globalized and desensitized society, void decks are gradually losing its original purposes.

To express this act of moving away and losing meaning, an HDB void deck will be wrapped in semi-translucent plastic sheets, similar to the imagery present in a house when someone moves their furniture away. Dancers wrap themselves over the architecture in an attempt to stop them from moving away, their bodies drift in and out of consciousness. Gradually, they start to understand the inevitability of change, and their movements serve as a commemoration of this space that was once a key contributor in building plural co-existence in Singapore."

Narrative

Please Dream Of Me

In a speculative future, those who have grown old will enter palliative institutions only to wait out the natural course of death. White like the skins of those who are dying, hospital walls become canvases for memory, producing a quiet longing for a past that connects the amnesiac elderly with their young caregivers.
