Developing MacRitchie is an ongoing research project inspired by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority’s proposal to build a metro line – Cross Island Line – across MacRitchie Reservoir by 2030. The project was first conceived in a mixed media installation, consisting of three video monologues and three alternating signs in a man-made rainforest environment. MacRitchie Reservoir is a reservoir that lies in the heart of Singapore and is part of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve today. Developing MacRitchie investigates the notion of development in Singapore in the context of the Cross Island Line, questioning if development is only defined by new creations.
