Departure and Return
The number of divorces increased rapidly during 1981 to 2001 in Hong Kong. In 2001, the number of divorces was 13,425 as compared to 2,062 back in 1981.The concept of home is constantly being broken down into smaller fragments. The ideal home is like an utopian illusion that is unreachable. This project is composed by many little house sculptures purchased from Ikea furniture store. These little houses were then sawn into smaller wooden pieces which composed into a screen. This curtain of fragments creates a spectacular display of light and shadow, provoking the viewer to think about various issues relating to broken families.
