Collecting leaves in Tuen Mun not only granted me a chance to familiarize the community, but also an opportunity to discover the link with the leaves. During my studies, I tried seeing them in depth; and listening to the stories being told silently.葉子研究 I
The Leaves and the Colours
During an artist in residency program in my home town, I stationed in Tuen Mun, one of the earliest established satellite towns of Hong Kong since the 60s where is now the home of more than 500 000 people. The once forgotten linkage with the nature was restored by the leaves in between the buildings and on the roadside. Some 50 samples of leaves with various levels of freshness, types, shapes, colours and sizes were collected along the way and turned into the medium for my work.
