The 36th Stratagem: Run away

The work captures different parts of the “City Sky” (Hong Kong 18 districts) as kite shapes. It pulls together the contradiction between the city and the kite, displaying the paradox of coexistence but also opposition between civilisation and nature. These kites are loaded with problems we are facing in our lives , demands, hopes and dreams , through “ kite flying ” in the form of flying in the air, like a detached, a kind of liberation , a conception of returning to nature. It is also a metaphor of military reconnaissance, communications and liaison, rescue and help seeking, like a reflection on urban development, global communication, and a longing for nature. Through this work, it is presenting the existing social carcass and hoping to be looking more in line for people-oriented rather than economic efficiency- oriented urban development.
