Synopsis

Wayfinding has historically been rooted in physical places, mapping how we orient ourselves, read signposts and navigate routes to reach a destination. In today’s context, how might the process of wayfinding offer new tools for reorientating ourselves in new and shifting territories? How can we create avenues for reencountering each other and discover doors to imaginative travel while making space for understanding oneself?

 

Recipes for Wayfinding is a site-specific installation, offering a series of creative activities that have emerged from a process of collective experimenting with body movements, sound and the sharing of stories. You may interpret these activities with freedom, bringing your own creative flair to the mix.

 

Project Collaborators: Alecia Neo, Sharda Harrison, Lim Tingli, Celine Tan and Hironori Kawaguchi
