Art in the Commons: Data Visualising Jurong

Jurong has been an integral part of Singapore’s economic history since the 1960s. The neighbourhood was first developed as an industrial estate, and has since grown into a vibrant hub of industry, commerce and residential units. Today, Jurong looks set to reinvent itself once more through the masterplan for the Jurong Lake District.

In Data Mining Jurong, Debbie Ding sketches out an alternate reality where Jurong’s past encounters its present, to reflect on what Jurong is, was, and might become. It is presented as the inaugural cycle for the Singapore Art Museum’s Art in the Commons: Data Visualising Jurong, a series of community-based, participatory art programmes to uncover community interests within the Jurong district.
