Hong Kong’s hyperactive fish market in overwhelming colours. Every screening is unique as projection requires two 16mm projectors.
Highview consists of four, partially overlapping, 16mm images that fully coalesce into a colourful abstract painting, but also often create a narrative as an exploded montage.
Time is condensed in 35mm imagery of the metropolises Hong Kong and Tokyo, melding together impressions of city life by day and night.
Frantic re-cataloguing of a personal archive and a vehicle for the re-birth of forgotten images in 35mm still photographs, obsessively tape-spliced together in evolving rhythmic patterns.
A prologue to Hong Kong's unrest, this 16mm film captures the colour, light, texture and chaos of a city before civil protest.
