Glow is working in service of public history to create a more socially and environmentally just future. She often co-labours with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. For this residency, she is pursuing a research-creation project that delves into Chinese, Singaporean, and the greater Southeast Asian visual and olfactory culture in relationship to trade histories that continue to impact our present and environmental futures. This multi-sensorial research of experiencing sites, scents and cultural objects along the spice and incense route will lead to multidisciplinary works that activate plant histories to and spur relational thinking that challenges the perceptions that humans are separate from nature. Her studio at Gillman Barracks is part of a collaboration between Yale-NUS College AIR and NTU CCA Singapore residencies.
