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 and reencountering ourselves and others in new and shifting territories?
Recipes for Wayfinding Workshop is a complement to the site-specific installation by artist Alecia Neo at the Esplanade Rooftop Terrace.
Co-facilitated by Alecia Neo and Jill J. Tan, the workshop offers a series of creative activities that have emerged from a process of collective experimenting with body movements, sound and the sharing of stories. Beginning with our feet, participants and facilitators will try out a series of creative exercises that invite different modes of listening and orienting via our body and different materials.
The workshop has been fueled by the practices and stories of project collaborators Alecia Neo, Jill J. Tan, Sharda Harrison, Lim Tingli and Celine Tan. Their work emerges against the current backdrop of the prolonged Covid-19 pandemic, its unfolding effects and the intensifying wars and conflicts globally, and the ongoing climate crisis that demands our immediate collective action.
