“It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.” John Steinbeck

Tidal pools are spaces caught between the extremely different forces of land and sea; they know the silent glare of sunlight and the surging power of ocean tides. The forces around them change constantly, yet they remain the same.

In the future, when nearly everything has been flattened and streamlined into a simulacra of reality, they might carry the narratives for alternatives.

Gezeitentümpel is a collection of visual poems and questions about the brevity of life and the vastness of time. They are archeological meditations, presenting hidden parts of Singapore that symbolize the infinite glory-- and futility-- of existence.

Maybe one has to descend to the tidal pools’ ground in order to discover. Whether you see stars or you see dirt, it is OK.
