Touch the Moon
Light is the basic element of moving images. Different ways have been used to transform light in “Touch the Moon”. The method is kind of sculptural, that is, by treating images as raw material and use addition, subtraction and repetition as methods to build and carve the images. On the one hand, It is kind of mathematical and experimental. However, on the other hand, also human touch has been added onto the images. Subtle feelings were conveyed through the touch of the “screen”. For the artist, the process of making video and trying different things was a process of discovery and self-exploration. It directly showed feeling at the abstract level.
The whole work was produced in a small enclosed space which reflected the living environment in Hong Kong. It is always packed, crowed and small. The physical, limited space created a psychological effect which urged the artist to make the video clean, serene and focused.
