This is a work that emits sounds and smoke, programmed with flickering lights. Covered with different plastic products, there is a Choo Choo train that rotates through the circular sphere. Projecting the silhouette of Hong Kong in different eras, "This train is like a galaxy railways or a Lost Time Travel Machine, that travel through different time and space in Hong Kong. Each time and space will appear staggered, making me imagine some of the disappeared buildings or scenes in Hong Kong, such as Queen’s Pier, street hawkers, Siu Pai Dong, Birds Street, co-exist in the current Hong Kong and enter a parallel world. Architecture from the 1960s to the present are intertwined, piecing together a fantasy Hong Kong in a parallel world.
