    To a relationship living in my dreams and reality,

    The uncertainty of reality, the gaps and errors of memory, the power of dreams, and my hope to escape, push me to think about what is real. Evidence, memories in people, or what we can feel? In the days we do not know what is real, what can we believe in, what can stay?

    Leung Hiu Ling was born in Hong Kong and studies Fine Arts in CUHK. She is interested in dreams and reality, fantasy and psychology, they always appeared in her art. She observes the world in a detached way, looking while keeping distance, because she thinks the distance between...

    "Harsh Heat" — I have learnt at a young age that Water Ghosts are the most ferocious. If I were to become a ghost amidst the vast Summer sea, I would probably, in days reeking of sweat, slam heads against walls with brute force, sing hymns in Japanese at the top of lungs, sanitize wounds with brute force, murmur prayers in Spanish at the top of lungs, hold “good morning” towels tight within palms with brute force, and while petting doggies with tears running down boiling cheeks, make a scene.

    Lo Wing Tao (b. 1998, Hong Kong), eldest son in the family, takes interest in freestyle cooking and...

As Feng Zikai mentioned in his article "漸 (zim6)", the essence of gradually process is time. Time, we are not able to grasp it. We always struggle in the past, get lost in the future and tangle in the reality. Mr. Feng tried to further construe the word of “gradually” with a metaphor. When we read books in the dusk, even the environment becomes darker and darker, our eyesight will finally get used to read under this unfavourable situation and we may forget about...
