Abstract: The text "Liquid Territory" is based on a conversation between the author and Hans Hortig (ETH Future Cities Lab Singapore) and is the result of an artistic reasearch at the NTU CCA Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore. The text reflects on the ongoing research into sand trade and land reclamation, as exemplified in the paradigmatic case study of Singapore. Singapore, located at the tip of the Malaysian territory and politically severed from the mainland since its independence in 1965, has been pursuing a policy of territorial expansion onto the sea. The topographical environment is rebuilt from scratch by human cranes as new coasts and new lands emerge from the depth of the ocean to serve the state’s global position and economic networks.
