Hong Kong by Night

“When the work is exhibited, at the touch of a release button, one image at a time may be revealed for a minute and a half before disappearing. There are twenty projectors in the room. Depending on the number of people present to trigger them, you might see various images at once, in shifting sequences. This is not a coherent set of documentary images, to be studiously cross-referenced against detailed descriptions of subject and historical context. These are images thrown into view, triggered and layered then lost. They will fail to be fully absorbed.” Isobel Whitelegg • Photographers’ Gallery
