This piece of work is a representation of the spaces in the past, present, and future in Singapore. Temporal.

As we dwell in the contradictions in the context of the images, we discern the negotiation between natural and urban spaces.
 
In Singapore, we are always moving from one place to another. Due to the relentless pace and the ever-growing population, Singapore is constantly changing to maximize space for urban life. 
 
The negotiation of sustaining natural spaces is a never-ending struggle. Urban spaces are continually needed to cater to everyone and these spaces are always in transition, continuously upgrading and fighting to stay relevant.



With natural spaces giving way to urban spaces due to the development of the country, it is a problem unique to Singapore. Places with abundant land and space like Switzerland and Norway do not seem to have such problems. 



The spaces we see today in Singapore might not exist in a few years.
