Forgotten Fragments

Sieve through the sands of time, unearth the lost landmarks of Singapore, and help time travelers of the Temporal Displacement Agency reassemble clay artefacts in this participatory play experience.

Forgotten Fragments is an interactive installation that invites audiences to reassemble jigsaw sculptures of lost places in Singapore by recalling their youth and childhood memories.

Curious attendees may sink their hands into the powdery sand and excavate fragments of landmarks and landscapes lost to urban redevelopment, colonisation and entropy. Can anyone still recall demolished sites that did not fit into the future of Singapore?

This game challenges participants to reconstruct these iconic places purely from memory, highlighting how heritage and cultural spaces will fade from retrospection if steps are not taken to preserve them for future generations.

Players must handle their archaeological finds with care. Shattered clay pieces are lost forever. This hands-on experience emphasises the fragility of these spaces, and any generation that destroys them leaves them irrevocably lost for for their descendants.
