Edition of 6 + 4 AP
180 x 260 cm
Hong Kong's harbor is recreated in a collage of thousands of fragments from holiday postcards. Postcards are relics of the past, tactile missives sent by mail and replete with personal significance and nostalgia. Upon close viewing, buildings, roads, water and sky break down into maps, barcodes, stamps, text and partial images, and there is a thrill in the discovery of this painstaking detail.
Like Hong Kong Postcard, the city itself is composed of innumerable fragments: buildings, bricks, circuits, people, intersections and histories.
