Edited from a thesis originally submitted for an MA at the School of Media Studies, The New School, in 2019. The research departs and builds on the author’s earlier project Concrete Island (2016) and his broader interest in thinking about/from Singapore through media theory. The essay weaves through various local key events, designed objects and artworks, broader theoretical ideas in geography and urban studies, and a series of relevant maps illustrating logistical and infrastructural flows.

Designed as a parallel edition to Flat Spaces, a condensed edited lecture version of the same research.
