edited and designed by gideon-jamie in collaboration with Kenneth Tay

An edited lecture by Kenneth Tay and a conversation between the author and the press (Gideon Kong). The first half (edited lecture) is a broad and concise version of Kenneth’s research into technological, geopolitical, and logistical infrastructures/spaces of Singapore. The other half (conversation) explores the processes and approaches involved in his research/practice. The two brings together a way of understanding the subject in both overt and covert ways, where processes involved in writing and publishing are presented as part of the research.

Designed as a parallel edition to The Sea is all Highway, a longer essay version of the same research.
