Hong Kong has always been a site of drastic changes. Time and again, these changes force us to confront our own vulnerability and to question ourselves and our surroundings. Hack the Moment explores how we have been affected by the changes in Hong Kong in recent years and captures our collective memories and shifting emotions. This video work is a conversation between body movements, sound, lighting, cinematography, and the environment; real-time data is turned into sound and light that interplay with a dancer’s body movements, which are improvised according to the environment. The result is a spontaneous and expressive piece that reflects the transformational moments that define us.
