I was fascinated by the exceptionally beautiful Hong Kong skyline after dark. Yet behind this exceptional beauty exists some dark creatures that start to move about, even passing us by. Inside this sculpture lies six live poisonous scorpions, a large number of crickets, and some human figurines. The viewer engages in a kind of strange interactivity with the insects inside by peeping into the magnified peepholes. This project explores those fearful or curious feelings generated by those helpless citizens who live under the shadow of violence in the city.
