This archival project is curated by Fruit Chan and Wing Shya, involving the production of videos by the artistic reworking of family audiovisual materials made available by local audience and institutional archives. The audience will experience the transformation of their family photos and videos into a time-travelling narrative to be shared online.
T​he six films offer a sensorial experience into an imagined parallel Hong Kong. Multiple and non-hierarchical, this assemblage of sensations, dreams, and myths opens the local subjectivity to virtual potentialities. The montage expands to achieve a rhizomatic flow.

Through a progression of sounds and images from local Hong Kong people and institutions, the editing team allowed sacred and profane elements to intertwine, remixing some among the infinite microhistories we see daily.

The radical footage texture is ethnographic and sci-fi, reality and fiction, giving birth to an archaic legend from the forgotten future of Hong Kong’s deep water pier.

This performative audiovisual project was initiated by THY LAB.
