First Homes
by  Logue.sg & In Merry Motion

Untitled Cropped

For a nation of immigrants old and new, home is more than a physical place; it is a feeling of comfort, security and belonging. Our first home was the anchor that helped us feel settled, even in a period of rapid change and uncertainty. As spaces of yesteryear become lost to time, Jean Loo and Chen Weiyan seek to uncover a deeper sense of national identity in all of us, inviting everyone to share the dearest memories of their first home.
