I first experienced sleeping in a tent when I went to Australia last year. My friends prepared me a tent with a pillow, a blanket, an air mattress and bed sheets to sleep in the countryside. At that moment, I thought living in a tent could somehow generate a feeling of home, which providing comfort, security, freedom and a private area for me. With lots of uncertainties about the inadequate housing problems, I decided to build a space for myself. By freeform crocheting and weaving, I created a tent. Although its surfaces are very colourful, they actually represent a contradictory idea of helplessness. The tent creates a space for us to think and feel safe, however, we must face the reality when coming out from inside. Sometimes we work hard to build something, but it may not last. Just like the tent, although I see it as a “home”, it is simply temporary shelter.

去年在澳洲時,我初嘗了在帳篷睡覺。朋友還為我準備了枕頭、毛毯、充氣床墊和床單。那一刻,我有一種感覺──帳篷給予我家的感覺,提供了舒適、安全、自由和私人且私密的空間。隨著香港住屋不足問題日益嚴重,憂慮促使我構建自己的空間。透過自由鉤織和編織,我築起了一個帳篷。它的豐富多彩實際上代表矛盾和無奈。帳篷內部提供了一個思考和感受的空間,可是,當走出來時,我們必須面對現實。有時,辛勤建立的東西也許不會恆久長存──就像這帳篷,雖然我稱它為一個「家」,但它永不能擺脫自身的暫時性。
