The Dakota estate in Singapore has been reflected within a convexity in recent times: the entire neighbourhood has been the loci for heritage enthusiasts and photographers. But from the same convexity, details are diminished. How about the crevices of the neighbourhood not captured in the repeated landscapes and narratives of its personalities and landmarks?

Rendering the estate through labels as text surtitles that narrate spatial and material encounters throughout the scattered-site, this work provides an alternative mise en scene to the existing cultural status.
