Voices is a physical and digital publication that gives visibility to the hidden and unheard voices of Indians who have experienced racism, whether casual or severe, in a fast-paced society like Singapore. The publication explores how our skin is a component of our dress and identity, and how an individual's skin color identifies them as members of an ethnicity, while simultaneously emphasising the importance of clothes, as certain individuals may be treated differently due to their type of dress.
The publication, titled “VOICES” explores how individuals of color navigate their lives and the challenges they experience because of their nationality or skin color, while living in Singapore. It seeks to provide new ways of seeing these individuals. Its intent is to develop a new visual language and visual tension through the medium of fashion to prompt people to recognise the severity of racism in Singapore. Fashion styling is utilised to elevate featured individuals in the publication to enable them to be felt, seen, heard, respected and empowered. VOICES aims to encourage individuals to reconsider their roles as members of the society, raise awareness of racism in Singapore and contribute to the building of a more peaceful and inclusive society for everyone.
