Object Landscape Series, 2015-2016
This is no simple representation but rather an imaginary skyline made from locally selected manufacturing objects. Each object selected marks a significant era of Hong Kong’s manufacturing industries in 50s - 60s. From Kwun Tong, Tsuen Wan to Kowloon and later further extended to Victoria Harbor. During these times, such industries supported and sustained these families and became the economic pillar for many of the working families in Hong Kong. To honor Hong Kong people's devotion and perseverance towards their city at a particularly crucial time, I have chosen five key manufacturing categories and constructed a series of "dreamscapes, a fantasy "homeland
that people at that time may have visualized.
Each diorama represents a platform to tell a small but fascinating story to celebrate this history of both struggle and self reliance of Hong Kong people.
