Building Making Buildings 樓樓起樓樓
That summer my grandfather took me to travel back to our ancestor’s village in Taishan and we had a great time together. Today I am sitting inside my own apartment on the 16th floor; occasionally I still miss the little house I used to live back at the village.

When we were a child, we used to follow our parents to Chinese restaurants. The conversations above the table were usually boring but the space underneath the table was exciting. We hid underneath and transformed the space into a playground of our own, running away from the grown ups. Now suddenly we become grown ups ourselves and those who used to be above the table are slowly disappearing one by one. This work is dedicated to those who used to play underneath the table and refuse to grow up.

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.

Towards A Brighter Future Through The Valley Of Darkness
What is the most impressive memory of your parent? Going to the playground together? The food your mother cooked? Or being beaten up by your parent? The trace of physical punishment already long faded away yet a large amount of abusing words still buried deep inside the child’s mind and become a wound that will not heal. Parent hit us in order to train us to become proper and not to do wrong things, yet this method of upbringing often lead to other side effects due to physical punishment according to psychologist. The damage on the soul might hurt more than the damage on the physical body. This installation dedicated to those who lived through the dark generation of physical punishment and finally arrived at the brighter future. This project was possible with research from the help of Against Child Abuse Ltd.

One leaf one universe
We rarely take notice of what is happening on a leaf, for a micro-organism the little leaf is its home and for the rest of its life it stays there. Looking at the Planet Earth from the outer space our planet is not so different than the little tree leaf, with us and other micro-organism busy going about our daily routine. Try to look carefully next time you see a grass or tree leaf, there is another universe in there.
