The Unseen/Unsaid 10-part mini series
Episode 4. Mosaic Story
Derek Foo, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Lee, Lim Song Lip and Jeremy Tan, 2011, 3 minutes, Rating TBA
The playground is a place of magic for any child, a land where worlds are created to be anything an imagination can muster. Alas when age catches up with us, we grow distant from these places that used to be so dear to us as children. They are like our grandparents, who have sat quietly through the years – looking over us and watching us play, people whom we remember to be a big part of our lives when we were kids, but whom we sometimes forget about as we grow up and start to live our own lives.
Ongoing: I Remember KTM: A contest organised by the National Library Board in collaboration with RediscoverSG. 5 sets of our Unseen/Unsaid paper toys to be given away weekly. Find out more here.
Using narratives from everyday Singaporeans to personify forgotten trades and places, Unseen/Unsaid allow viewers a glimpse into the personal struggles of individual Singaporeans whose stories draw a parallel with the surrounding places and landscapes. The 10-part series is born out of a desire to preserve the fragments of Singapore’s past that is rapidly being replaced by new developments.
One new episode will be released from 29 June, 2011, every Wednesday, 11.00AM on rediscover.sg till the week of 31 August, 2011.
The Unseen/Unsaid Paper Toys Collection
As a tie-in with our Unseen/Unsaid series, Lizzy and Jeremy of the RediscoverSG crew have spent the past few months designing a set of five paper toys related to the people/places featured in our webisodes.
These DIY paper toys are retailing at $20 for a set of 5. 100% of the proceeds from the first 500 sets sold will go to the MILK (Mainly I Love Kids) fund to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
If you’ll like to buy a set, head over to our shop. Toys are sold while stocks last. We ship both locally and internationally.
