Longest night

On 23 March 2015, Singapore declared a week long period of national mourning for the passing of the country’s founding father, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. “The Longest Night” attempts to capture the physical and emotional state of half a million people queue up to pay their last respect at Singapore’s Parliament House. The series repetitive use of barricades, umbrella, police tape etc to represent the relationship between the State and the people they serve, and to symbolize the country in anxiety, sadness and despair.
