tide.hong kong: in transit

tide.hong kong : in transit is based on sensations of the sights and soundscapes of Victoria Harbour. The seashore platform in Whampoa is punctuated by holes which produce harmonic tones that shift with the tides. Lee’s works of art are derived from the intersection between installation and performance, and draw on a practice of listening to the world. In this site-and-time specific performance, the composite of the sound-making objects and human voices narrates subtle changes in environment .

This performance will be followed by “The Metamorphosis of Hung Hom,” a tour led by Walk In Hong Kong 活現香港. Once a centre of heavy industry, the neighbourhood has in recent years transformed into a mixed residential and commercial area. This tour will survey the old streets and stories of Hung Hom. The walking route will include cinemas, temples, factories and piers that form part of the history of Hong Kong.

Born in Hong Kong, Fiona Lee obtained her Bachelor of Arts majoring in Critical Intermedia Laboratory from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. Her works of art are derived from the intersection between installation and performance. Her recent art practices and inspirations have come from the feeling of particular moments in her daily routine, which she explores as if it were a world of adventure. Her recent work focuses on the relationship between sound frequencies and electromagnetic fields.
