Days — and counting is an on-going portrait of COVID-19 that captures the surreal and strange times we live in through the lens of art and artists. The programme unfolds in three seasons each taking the form of an immersive digital experience that explores our new reality under the pandemic.

The digital art walk takes the metaphor of a dream. The seasons mirror Singapore slowly awakening and having to adapt to new measures and an inescapable reality. These experiences unpack the effects of COVID-19 on a personal and collective level.

Season 1: Walls Crumble
Walls Crumble explores the idea of home during the circuit breaker as a teletext adventure, a now defunct service that allowed Singaporeans to get information such as news, stock prices and weather on the television. Audiences can traverse a surrealist narrative of a sleeping man’s dreamscape via multiple teletext channels, and encounter artworks by local artists Ang Kia Yee, Hunny & Lummy, Kevin Fee, Pat Toh and Tristan Lim.

The season debuts with a live-stream performance of Pat Toh's Topography of Breath 2.0, at 8pm on 28 October 2020 on SISTIC. Following that, the official experience will launch at 9pm on 30 October 2020 as a desktop-only experience.

More details on season 2, The distance between us and season 3, Waking up with a crash, will be released at a later date.
Days — and counting is available HERE.
