In Search of […] Code for Undoing 2018 UK/HK / Video, Sound and Dance

Visual : Livia Garcia
Dance : Kim Geun Young (South Korea)
Sound : Red Pig Flower (South Korea/Berlin)

Producer : Makin Fung Bing Fai (Hong Kong)

A video of about 17 minutes long was produced as part of the Water Modulation Festival in Hong Kong. It was the first attempt in turning my line drawings into moving images. The work was then interpreted by sound artist Red Pig Flower (South Korea/Berlin) and dancer Kim Geun Young (South Korea) during two live performances at the McAuley Studio Theatre in Hong Kong. Producer: Makin Fung Bing Fai (Hong Kong).

The video is comprised of 4 Acts together with a Preface. Act 1: Blossom, Act 2: Industrialisation, Act 3: Poison Rain, Act 4: The Code. The narrative starts with a seed which blossoms into red flowers with the showering of clean rain. However, under excessive construction the rain slowly becomes poisonous and eventually kills the red flowers. Through the last Act The Code, I put forward a question: can we find a code to undo damages to the environment that are brought about by human interventions?
