Keeping the lights on: Chapter 2
夜開燈(二)

2024

 

Silent yet all-embracing. Light is there in front of you to guard your steps. Light is inside of you to keep you from being snared.

Keeping the lights on--now made up of videos and photos--is a series of responses to some make-believe vibe facing a city that some believe it's been dead. But it doesn't reach its end--its consciousness is traversing all the dimensions known and unknown. Let's keep the lights on.

I took a photo of the view outside my living room windows almost every night from November 2023 to March 2024 to see if people were home and switched on their lights or they were outside enjoying the “night vibe”.

 

I layered the photos weekly and monthly as well as creating an aggregate photo that layered the monthly photos.

 

In addition, I created videos to mimic the act of switching on lights. Some of the videos are imagined stories based on my reflection of the “current vibe”.

你有你繽紛,佢有佢開燈。看守者,須有外在與內在的光。
