2016         PhD Communication (Film Studies)


SUMMARY

The ordinary man at work is the backbone of efficient city life for his aspirations drive the spirit of the metropolis.

Part of Joni Gutierrez' "Home for Now" Exhibition held from 1 June to 3 July 2016 at the Hong Kong Baptist University Library: http://hkbu.libguides.com/exhibitions/homefornow

Artist's Statement:

Wandering around Hong Kong has become my path in connecting with its lifeworld - something that I cannot satisfactorily express in words. The photographic medium, however, with its dual affinities for the concrete and the indeterminate, offers a way for me to invoke this elusive sphere. The ensuing panoramic mosaic in this exhibition manifests an ongoing attempt at a creative conversation with the Hong Kong lifeworld.
