In this artist-led session, participants will imagine themselves as archaeologists from the future. Artist-in-Residence Fazleen Karlan will guide you on a tour to discover what kind of objects are embedded in the city’s soil and understand them from a different perspective. In the first part of the workshop, participants will explore the area in the vicinity of NTU CCA Singapore at Gillman Barracks to seek out objects that have been discarded or left behind, whether accidentally or intentionally. In the second part, participants will gain hands-on experience of archaeological techniques used to process and document artefacts. Through this workshop, participants will develop an appreciation of how artefact analysis can reveal several aspects of human activities and how “ordinary relics” provide information about material forms and social behaviours of 21st century’s urban societies.
