Vanishing Hope revolves around 20,000 missing civilians up in the Northern & North-Eastern territories of Sri Lanka before, during and after the civil war in 2009.
6.9 is the new estimated population figure to hit Singapore by 2030. With declining birth-rates, an influx of foreigners to make up the numbers and a fight of space on the tiny red dot comes with the repercussions of limiting traditional spaces and practices to accommodate. 6.9 focuses on the largest Chinese cemetery of Singapore & outside of China,last village of Singapore,Xenaphobia and etc.
Decades of Civil war unrest up in the Northern & Northern eastern provinces of Sri Lanka sparked thousands to leave in the midst of the clashes and only to return 26 years later. 6 years since the civil war has ended yet the military troops of Sri Lanka still occupy the lands of the civilians and have used their land for farming & other recreational activities. It is not till 2015 that small lands have been released for people to return and its a question if the rest of it will be returned.
