From communal villages to high-rise flats, how has the “kampung spirit” of old survived the transition? For those who call Waterloo Centre home, sharing comes organically. A funeral turns private grief into public spectacle – a community appears, gathers, mourns and then disappears… In Rhetorical Territories, photographer Tom White memorably captures how this coexistence takes place at every moment through subtle acts of “negotiation” rather than government policy. The book also documents the responses of 50 viewers from all walks of life. Their opinions, recollections and musings offer us a fascinating, multifaceted look at private vs. public space, cultural commonality, and the meaning of home in Singapore.
