Waiting for the elevator

Choo’s Waiting for the Elevator (2014) is a composite. In attempt to reflect upon the function of the void deck in public housing in Singapore, the resulting image acts as a documentation of individuals ocupying the spaces.

Incorporating documentary footage taken in various public housing estates around Singapore, these otherwise independent tableaus were spliced together to form an unravelling panorama. Each individual featured in the piece was filmed in his or her own discrete space, as the immediate architectural surroundings make clear, but every scene occurs in the void deck of an apartment block, with the disconnected footage then sutured together to achieve the desired effect.
