Independent Projects

Before It All Goes

In conjunction with Darren Soh's solo exhibition at Objectifs about the disappearance of our post-independence architecture, Run & Gun Media co-produced a 20-minute documentary to go deeper into the tensions behind these buildings' gradual disappearances, beyond Darren Soh's photos and captions. We talk to residents of a Tanglin Halt HDB flat, a homeowner of Pearl Bank Apartments condominium, and commercial tenants of Golden Mile Tower.

Between Two Homes: Stories of Dakota Crescent

Introduction Trailer to Between Two Homes

On 25 July 2014, HDB announced that Dakota Crescent, a predominantly rental flat estate with lower income residents, would be slated for redevelopment. By December 2016, most of the residents had moved out of this place they used to call ‘home’.

The relocation of an entire estate calls into question the Singaporean’s idea of home, for both renters and homeowners. What does ‘home’ mean to you?

The Between Two Homes project came together towards the end of 2016, as the residents of Dakota Crescent started to relocate. We sought to use Dakota Crescent as a case study on how the community could come together to preserve memories of a place and render assistance to those affected by relocation.

Alongside Run & Gun Media, this multimedia website was produced by a group of citizen volunteers & Dakota Adventures, and funded by Our Singapore Fund.
