4D | “磨刀师” Installation


Mdm Lee is one of the last knife sharpeners that’s left in Singapore. The purpose of this installation is to introduce one of the least known traditional manual labour profession that will soon be rendered obsolete in the face of modernity. When will we ever stop destroying what is ours? 

“The Knife Lady” film will be played on loop – https://vimeo.com/209626431
Video is available at the end of the post!

Re-creating Mdm Li’s workspace by showing a “moment” of how it looks like when she works. 


This was the film that I’ve done in Project 2 and was projected in loop during the installation.

That’s all folks! See you Foundation 4D and Robert 😉
