Pak Sheung Chuen conducted a residency from October to November 2008. During his time at AAA, he developed a work, White Library/A Mind Reaching for Emptiness.

'A blank page is a pause of time in reading. It could also be readable, offering infinite imagination. A blank page creates a common link between different books, giving us a vision of the whole. During my residency at Asia Art Archive, I photocopied all the blank pages from its collection, attempting to create an alternative to the archive’s collection. I selected one hundred pieces of photocopied blank pages, and combined it with an introduction to the artwork, creating an artwork.' Pak Sheung Chuen. More details on the program page.
