Found twigs on Pulau Ubin Island, 2015
With Singapore as one of the most urbanised countries in the world today, it would not be surprising for its current occupants to be accustomed to the ways of living within an urban society. From having signs at almost every corner that you turn and neatly paved roads to guide your travel, to having gardens where we can regulate and arrange nature to our liking. Hinting on what seems to be the concern, or maybe even fear, that an urban society might possess of not feeling in control in an environment. For example, from not being able to navigate the terrain without a clear guidance from signs etc. Similar facilities appear to be popular suggestions by the public to be included in Pulau Ubin, in regards to concerns alike the previously mentioned. Thus, could the suggestion to include urban facilities into Pulau Ubin be another indication of such condition to feel more in control of the environment?
I seek to address the seemingly prevalent need that an urban society has, to be in control of their surroundings and necessity of it.
