Los Angeles is surrounded by these imaginary stations that feed reality, the energy of the real to a city whose mystery is precisely that of no longer being anything but a network of incessant, unreal circulation --- a city of incredible proportions but without space, without dimension … … this city, which is no longer anything but an immense scenario and a perpetual pan shot, needs this old imaginary like a sympathetic nervous system made up of childhood signals and faked phantasms " [Simulacra and Simulation, Jean Baudrillard]

was thinking.... how about Singapore? what is the reality and hyperreal? what do people consider their home... their place?
