Forming Cityscapes is a project where designers Jamie Yeo and Gideon Kong obsessively observe and photograph minor urban occurrences in the city of Singapore. These can be seen as forms of appropriation, resistance, improvisation, or critique within spaces or structures implemented at a larger scale. In this fifth collection, they look at the excessive use of traffic cones and how it forms part of Singapore’s cityscape.
