    The United College Wu Chung Multimedia Library (UCL) is going through significant change as multimedia moves to video-streaming and the collection of DVDs on the ground floor becomes less and less relevant. The Library’s plan is to create boutique humanities-based libraries on the upper campus, and distribute the multimedia collection to the relevant subject libraries. UCL will be refurbished in the summer 2017 in order to accomplish this mission. For more details about the refurbishment project, please click here .

    Artist Statement:
    Shadow seems to be a tacit part of our body which follows every tiny movement of us, yet, we seldom perceive it. "Shadow" can be interpreted in terms of its physicality, the psychological projection of our inner selves or the embodiment of multiple characters. Through capturing light and shadow, the three participating artists will inquire into the states of shadow, imagine and reflect the concept of "shadow" by hypothesizing the loss of it.
