Sea Saw Singapore is a new action performed for Tropical Lab 13 : Erasure
Previous actions in the series required the cutting of rivers (whilst walking backwards across the current) with a hand saw. The aim? To help reduce rising sea levels.
With Sea Saw Singapore 36 kilograms of ice was placed over a drain which leads to Rochor Canal buried below the road. Rochor Canal was once a main artery for the city. Ice was transported along the waterway from Rochor Ice Works.
Ice was cut with a handsaw and carried (by mouth) back to La Salle Campus to be spat into a bucket suspended between 3 pillars.
