Internal Orientation I
1999 ) embroidery city map on carpet and low speed rotor 100cm x 100cm x 3cm
Mapping is an act to identify boundary and ownership. A map abstracts data of a place at a particular moment of time. How do we map/define our own territory (our home) in relation to the exterior public space? This project consists of a series of household furniture on which the street map of Hong Kong was either embroidered to the surface. A low speed rotor was attached to enable spinning motion.
The Hong Kong Art Archive is honoured to be chosen as one of the HKU Faculty of Arts 90th Anniversary projects.
