Diaspora after Death

A Visual Essay of Bukit Brown Cemetery in Singapore

Terence Heng Singapore Institute of Technology Hui Yew-Foong Hong Kong Shue Yan University

Abstract This visual essay is a record of the social and cultural life of Bukit Brown Cemetery, where the deceased are considered diasporic subjects, even after physical death. This continuing journey was occasioned by the exhumation of about 4,000 graves to make way for an eight-lane highway, which also led to the documentation project on which the materials for this essay are based.
