Hiring foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong has been popular since the late 80s, 3% of Hong Kong population is foreign domestic helpers. By mold casting domestic cleaning bottles and depicting my precious memories on them, I would like to reflect my priceless experience with my maid in contrast with how most Hong Kong people treat maids as consumer goods or cheap service.

香港人口當中,有百分之三是外籍家庭傭工,而且人數更是 不斷增長。這份作品透過倒模,複製家庭清潔用品的形態, 並繪畫家傭與小僱主的那份無價感情和深厚的關係,以對比 現今香港僱主把傭人當作貨物或廉價服務的態度。
