Today, China, an emerging (ancient) Nation, and Hong Kong, the former British colony, meet in the wave of globalisation, are closer than ever to living together in the prophetic utopia in Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World”. I will introduce my five-month research work at Hong Kong Baptist University and the ongoing new work “K.O.H.D.3 (TENANT IN PARADISE”), an attempt to mirror the two places as the future we might face, a new World that has been renamed XIANG GANG. It’s a mixture of field video materials, pirated DVDs, downloaded documentaries, science fiction films, TV series, a story about paradise; this is part of my ongoing project “YOU ARE THE DREAM OF MY REALIZATION” since 2006…
