Endless Day features drawings (2012 -2014) that look perceptually at multiple locations in Philadelphia and are then worked through memory, eventually becoming a fictional cityscape created with a playful approach.  Singer describes noise and time through a stacking of shapes, color, and repetitive patterns. Squares provide the basic measurement of this imagined urban landscape in which a finished and unfinished moment in time coexist on the same field.
