The Substation

The Substation is the 3-storey building on the left. It used to be an electrical substation. It is now an arts centre. It is located on Armenian Street, next to Singapore Management University. I think the black fabric exterior is temporary, an installation art display.


"Founded in 1990 by the late Kuo Pao Kun, The Substation is Singapore’s first independent contemporary arts centre. We are centrally located in the city’s civic district. Our venues include a black box theatre, a gallery, a dance studio,Random Room and two multi-function classrooms. We present and co-present a wide range of artists and programmes, from traditionally trained dancers to local rock bands; established visual artists to young poets; publications to international short film festivals; experimental theatre to seminal conferences on Singapore arts and culture."
  • Nikon D7000, 24mm f1.4
  • At 24mm, f1.4, ISO 100, 1/30 seconds
  • Manual exposure, center-weighted metering, auto white balance
  • Picasa: Auto contrast, straighten, crop.
I tried a few different angles: left, right, straight-on. This view from the left seemed to work the best. The windows at the side of the building make the photo more interesting.

I cropped the photo to leave out some clutter at both sides of the buildings. I believe that cropping is the best way to improve most photos.
