Polluta: Floating Artist Colony in the Sky
In 2084, Plan Polluta solves China’s pollution issue—industrial waste is condensed into building bricks, and these bricks build green vibrant live/work communities for artists!
My work is comprised of two parts—a printed booklet and a live performance at the Hong Kong-venue of the exhibition. The booklet “Residents’ Guide to Polluta” is a tongue-in-cheek introductory manual for new residents of Polluta. The colony seems too good to be true! The bad news is that it is.
The idea is given an experiential and temporal dimension when I, as the president of the Ministry of Polluta, invite visitors to live entry interviews at the opening night. Interview questions range from practical to ridiculous. The absurdity highlights that of the Polluta project, but more importantly, that of the unacceptable level of pollution Hong Kong and China are putting up with.
Polluta: Floating Artist Colony in the Sky is an extension of my graduation project

Canal Street Public Art Project with Art Together
October – December 2015
I was one of the invited artists to create an illustration or comic on history of Causeway Bay to engage in public dialogue. Causeway Bay has more shopping than Shibuya. Its rent higher than Fifth Avenue.* I will make a piece that features the endearing anecdote of a penguin that used to be a regular on Paterson Street.
