Singapore’s first sound artist to showcase at the Singapore Pavilion of the 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, Zulkifle Mahmod is an Associate Artist at The Substation, Singapore. He is known for his innovative use of sculpture with “sound constructions” and “sound-scapes”, often crossing genres and collaborating with other artists.
In Deck Journey, eight deck chairs are set up along the waterfront. When a visitor sits on one of them, it lights up and transmits a specially created soundscape. The visitor is enveloped in a light and sound bubble while enjoying a view of Marina Bay. This festival commission reduces energy consumption through the use of energy efficient LEDs.
