“I SAW You SING” is a new revolution to structural crack repair. It is a dream saw which can repair any concrete cracks and fractures in walls. When the cracks are stabilized and cured, it leaves behind a permanent colourful mark. This saw will also sing you a song during the repair process.

It is ironic that a saw has become more significant as a tool being returned to its initial purpose of aiding construction, because in contemporary culture, we often see the saw as a tool of violence, mutilation and destruction in horror-gore films such as SAW and Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

In this video, through the process of make believe and creating dream-like sequences, Joo Choon Lin sought to respond to the gaps between the social classes in global society and using the saw as a symbol of expression to bridge social fragmentation/barriers.
