'Recycling Cinema records vehicles on a Hong Kong expressway over the course of 24 hours. The exhibition restores the original filming techniques by using expanded projection to cast the recordings on a curved screen of 150 degrees which breaks the boundaries of the images and creates a panoramic and immersive viewing experience. The speed and direction of the moving images are uncoordinated; the rhythm changes in response to a viewer's breath or physical movement. Upon leaving the screen, an image travels across the room and returns to its point of departure, creating a sense of temporal and spatial imbalance. The work was first exhibited in the Hong Kong China participation in the 49th Venice Biennale.'
