Discipline the City Series
Issue 06 - Sand


Author: Clarissa Oon, Faiz bin Zohri, Joshua Comaroff

SAND is the last in a series of six publications unpacking ideas of discipline and space. The book features three explorations of "sand" and its relation to Singapore as a city-state.

Clarissa Oon's essay explores the place of sand in our playgrounds, reclaimed land and artistic imaginations, while Faiz Bin Zohri proposes a speculative vision of 2065, where rising sea levels have placed a premium on elevated ground, leading to a great land declamation. The book closes with an essay by Discipline the City co-curator Joshua Comaroff, who delves into Singapore's rapacious land expansion and its implications.
