Kowloon City (2016)

The work consists of dozens of cube of various sizes, imitating a traditional measuring instrument called "masu", which is mainly used as a container for measuring rice and can also be used as a food container. These cubes extend crisscrossly across all directions in an organic and random manner, showing the unique "landscape" of the former Kowloon Walled City.

 

At the same time, in the grass outside the exhibition grounds, Ray placed a number of seemingly disposable paper works, written above some repetitive text, which includes characters we were punished to copy in the old days at school. The concept of this work was inspired by the story of “the Pavillion for Revering Written Words” at the Kowloon Walled City.
