About the piece
This video takes a macroscopic and global view of Hong Kong culture, connecting her idiosyncratic cultural, historical, geographical and political conditions in a symbolic play in relation to greater Chinese culture.
Isolation of Hong Kong from Mainland China and her mixed cultural influences, before and after the Handover, effectuate the ongoing osmotic evolution, an exchange that is a drag and pull to the development of Chinese cultural and political status. A world within a world, a water within a water, is the visual structure developed. Images like Sea, Ink and Calligraphy, as well as different modes of sound diffusion and mise-en-scène are some of the elements being used to generate micro and macro movements via a world-within-world model.
