Episode sum­ma­ry
The key-cut­ting machine, a close com­pan­ion of the key mak­er, has real­ized that while Time has worn out her blades, tar­nished her façade and chipped her sides, Time has been far less kind to her human mas­ter. Today, she finds her­self idling most of her hours away, cut­ting the occa­sion­al key while close­ly watch­ing her human mas­ter, though still wiry and strong, slow­ly fade at the hands of Time.

About Unseen/Unsaid
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.
