Objects of Abnormality reveals the anomalies of this city. Controversial objects are converted into pinhole cameras, becoming carriers of this moment in the history and culture of Hong Kong. The images are rudimentary, constructed to depict Hong Kong’s emotional state, permeated by uncertainty, oppression and absurdity. The experimental series communicates different kinds of collective emotions and existing social maladies from the perspective of objects, providing a chance for people to reconsider the relationship between objects, emotions, and urban space.
