Explore the southern stretch of the iconic Rail Corridor and uncover stories of the many guests—both human and non-human—that the old railway line has played host to.   

Drawing from her interest in forest networks and plant consciousness, artist and sound designer Tini Aliman gives a voice to the swathe of wilderness which has silently observed diverse ways of life along the Rail Corridor through the use of field recordings and foley. Tune in to personal oral history recounts interwoven with speculative fictional texts by Nuraliah Norasid, narrated by Nadya Zaheer, as well as a podcast segment by wildlife conservationist and environmentalist Elliott Ong and Qiyun Woo as they converse with SAM curator Selene Yap.  

This self-guided audio trail marks the shifts and changes along the Rail Corridor in the areas adjacent to Spooner Road, Jalan Bukit Merah, Telok Blangah and Jalan Kilang Barat.

Speaking of which - A Living Blueprint is commissioned by The Everyday Museum, a public art initiative by Singapore Art Museum, in partnership with National Archives of Singapore.
