Street Report 2 – Hooks and Holes


This investigation by Faiz Bin Zohri in the Street Report publication series looks at the Sungei Road Thieves Market in Singapore, a place where an informal and fluid network of market vendors come together to sell an array of second-hand items. This work attempts to capture the vibrant spirit of the market by focusing on a very specific area of interest-the “system” of hooks and holes found on the road surfaces where the market sits, one that both enables and governs the setup, organisation, and functioning of market stalls, which in turn affects the behaviours and interactions between vendors and customers.
