One Borrowed Summer is a video installation that represents my complicated and unspoken feelings towards Hong Kong when I was away on vacation during the summer of 2019.  The installation mimics a beach.


Materials were both collected from two locations, Venice and Hong Kong which projected a strong contrast of social environments at that period of time. While vacationing meant for relaxation and release of stress, the distress and unforgettable scenes turned up in the form of beach. Stripped away the relaxation and happiness, the beach is left in cold monotone.


“I was lying on the beach alone while my mind was drifting away along the sound of the wave and laughter of vacationers. My heart was heavy as my city in miles away screaming.” I wrote.
