  2. Toronto is Home.

    Many people always say Toronto is an ugly city, whether it be dirty, too cold, too slow and inaccessible. Sure, even I've been there. I've called it those things and worse.

    Toronto is the world's Screwface Capital. The people of our city will only devote energy into something they believe is great; something that is unique to their city, something that we can call our own. Not only are we the worst at self deprecation, but even rivals tell us that we're not good enough; not culturally, physically or artisinally.

    I say we're just finding our own way.

    Hong Kong is Home.

    I remember when I first arrived in Hong Kong almost a decade ago, I felt like I had walked into an actual movie set. It was a place that I had only seen on TV as a kid, with its strange red taxi’s, odd stop lights and driving on the other side of the road.

    My intent with this project was to illustrate the grandeur of Hong Kong that most people would never get to see. When I had recently watched the movie Oblivion, it had somehow starkly reminded me of Hong Kong, with the feeling of being so insignificantly small -- almost irrelevant to my surroundings. Hong Kong is an unbelievably dense city, where much of the world can be accessed at your fingertips. But in a city where you can access the material world in a matter of seconds, it also has the ability to isolate you from the 8 million people around you as well.

    With this piece, I hope that you are able to engage in this contradiction.
