Star illustrates events and protests against demolition of two historic sites: Star Ferry Pier and Queen’s Pier. The demolition raised public concern over the lack of heritage conservation policy in Hong Kong and the role of collective memory.

Applying click noise, downtempo electronica and the glitch style from the colours of buildings in day time to the myriad twinkling lights of city in night time, “Move” is to show the linear moving motion of Hong Kong cityscape collage on screen by using the creator’s unique style of sound-image synchronization and architectural collage.
