The dream of Hong Kong people during the colonial time was said to be to get rich, move up the social ladder and become a member of the middle class. Since the 1990s, such a dream is said to be increasingly more difficult to achieve with Hong Kong becoming a Chinese city. More than 20 years after 1997, new and non-material expectations are added to the old bottle with the emerging younger generation. In my work, I attempt to document and re-present the souls and the spirit of the Hong Kong people amidst the recent worsening social instability and mounting conflicts.
