"From getting lost to positioning and repositioning, from hidden behind a “comfort mask” to a final naked confrontation, this piece has played well on the overall mood and lighting rather than conveying a deep-touching message." - Chloe Chia/ HKELD
In this interconnected world, we float around like bits of skin.
Any brief moment we stop, we will be swallowed up by time.
When time excretes us back out, where are we then?
I remember once we were overseas, and lost. We became good friends with Google Maps. It was as though, with it, we could roam the world without fear, with the sense of safety it offered us. We believed in it unconditionally – even if we didn’t know whether the road ahead was right or wrong.
In this high-efficiency city, it’s easy to get swept up in the currents of happenings. We feel as though we are lost; we want to open that map and find our bearings. Sometimes, it’s as though we are restricted by arbitrary standards society has pinned on us, forced to navigate along others’ concepts of “good” and “right”. We all seem to be trying hard to prove ourselves; at the same time, we lose our truest selves.
How should we find our own positions? How does one position oneself? Or do we need others to position us? Or, do you even care?
