I’ve Cot You is a photo-documentary heritage project currently showcased at Artspace @ SCCC. It traces personal Singaporean stories and memories about the cloth cradle, also known as ‘yao lan’. Used amongst Asian families to coax their babies to sleep in the 1980s and 1990s, it has since become obsolete as lifestyle trends and consumption patterns evolved in modern Singapore.

One of these photos feature an enlarged baby cot and visitors are encouraged to share their own ‘yao lan’ photographs using hashtags #gotcotatSCCC and #ivecotyou.

This project is conceptualised and photographed by Singaporean photographer, Zinkie Aw, who specialises in corporate photography and teaches at Canon Imaging Academy.
