This work conveys the issues of ageing and the impact it has on the human disconnection between elderly and their family or friends. Although in the same HDB space, every room is disconnected from the other by its different perspective and symbolic door sills that obstruct, exploring loneliness of elderly even with family. Rotary telephone dials are distorted into couches or dining tables to convey a lack of communication. Interactive spaces are empty. The towering railings convey powerlessness, alluding to elderly’s deteriorating autonomy which impacts social interactions. Collaged obituary pages and the urn conveys death, alluding to lost friends.
