綠蕪 Green Earth

In a future where expansion and development is valued above conservation and nature, Eva stubbornly struggles to protect her beloved tree from being destroyed in the face of progress and ends up in the middle of a standoff with the developers.

 

An animated short I created with Angela Wong, Green Earth is the story of a girl's journey fighting to protect what she loves and what she learns in the process about life and strength during her time with the tree.


在一個只注重發展的未來城市,主角 EVA 為了讓一棵伴她成長的大樹不受破壞,和地產發展商展開了一場緊張的拔河戰⋯⋯ 《綠蕪》由 CATQU 和王瑞琪聯手執導,是關於一個女孩在抗爭過程中的成長故事,關於她如何從大樹身上學習在逆境中自強不息和抱緊希望。

Inevitable Death of the Universe

ISEA2016 Open Sky Project

This was a piece I did in collaboration with Harry Hung of LfxLab. 

The future of the universe is uncertain, but there are many theories on how it may end. The history of mankind is very short and we are just a small chapter in the timespan of the world's journey across time and space. Against the backdrop of this eternal flow of time towards our end, it is strangely comforting to know that our own human struggles on this pale blue dot are but small and temporary in the scale of the larger scheme of things. We are but specks of dust against the repeating cycles of creation and destruction, as the counter reflecting the age of the universe ticks away steadily.


The project was presented on the 77,000 sqm of urban media screen that makes up the façade of the ICC, the highest tower in Hong Kong on March 10th and 11th.
