Image for Serial Parallels


Serial Parallels


This experimental animation approaches Hong Kong’s built environment from the conceptual perspective of celluloid film, by applying the technique of film animation to the photographic image. The city’s signature architecture of horizon-eclipsing housing estates is re-imagined as parallel rows of film strips: Serial Parallels.
