The work combines the fragments of ideas of the artist about his identity, collective memories and the a recursion beyond real and virtual space, or reality and dreams.

Shot in the Thirteen Streets area in To Kwa Wan in Hong Kong, four customised kinetic LCD panels that incline randomly will be placed on the stairs of the gallery, and will show a continuous loop of a man endlessly walking down a flight of stairs but never reaching the bottom. The random movement of the screens gives the illusion of the man’s descent down the stairs, as well as interpreting the “the drop” when we imagine to go downstairs in dreams.
