Series of urban landscapes as a form of translation/transcoding of Kai-cheung Dung’s novel "Atlas: The Archaeology of an Imaginary City"
 
The project starts off with Kai-cheung Dung’s novel "Atlas: The Archaeology of an Imaginary City", a book of (postmodern) fiction about Hong Kong, then traces the locations in that book onto the real terrain of today's Hong Kong by means of a psychogeography documented in digital photographs, and is then once again transcoded into visual form as a series of mixed media works combining archival pigment print on canvas, screenprint ink, acrylic, oil-and-wax and china ink.
This is a project about positionality, a sense of place, about cultural translation and transcoding, and about mediating between different cultural flows.
