'Eating Alone' is a work that reflects my views and perception of lone diners as both a participant and an observer. It consists of a Hong Kong style snack shop setting with a table mounted on wall and two videos of separated lone diners facing the wall, showing a situation of lone diners gather having their meals there. The audience can participate by taking the seat between the separated 'diners', or to observe the happenings in the installation. The merge of the moving images and the actual participation in the installation changes the audience's experience, by the relationship between the visible (perspectives) and the invisible (perception evoked).
