“Hello, can you do me a favour?” “What is your motto and you are trying to live by?” It was an opening that Mabel had asked a number of strangers who walked in the tiny fast food shop by chance. Due to the long working time in London, she used the shop as medium to know this place. Unexpected response and priceless contact with the strangers is treasure as a gift to her by the city.

The Disappearing View

2017

Single channel video projection with installation

2 minutes 10 seconds

The evergreen mountain and the little Victoria Harbour was the view from my living place’s corridor. Seeing fireworks together with my family and taking family picture as a background, that is our good common memory we spent together. One day, it was disappeared by the city development ruthlessly. As a citizen who living in a narrow environment, you are unable to choose the living space-size as well as the view. To find the missing and intimate view, a journey had started among the estates and the buildings.
