'urban wanderings is a compilation of past writings (in English and Chinese) and film photographs taken in Hong Kong. It is a printed product or “photo book”; but it is also a desperate (and delusional) attempt to remap and salvage one’s gradually dissipating identity, a lifelong quest for — for what? Perhaps an alternative to this vacant and ritualistic life, an elusive ideal that is forever unresolvable.

Most of the (dated) philosophical discourses were written when the protagonist (author) was at university, as part of her coursework as an English Creative Nonfiction major. The rest were written and compiled during office lunch breaks or rare nights when she had some kind of agency over time and residual energy to document her mental utterances.'—description provided by maker



「《忙/茫/妄(忘遊)》是一本菲林攝影和中英寫作集。它是一本印刷品、「攝影集」;但它本身也是一個充斥著無力感(和對理想生活的妄想)的載體。作者(攝影師)以圖文軿湊的過程重新梳理、反思、映射和極力挽救一個逐漸消散的身份和個人意識,從而設法釐清她終日對人生的真正追求。這追求是什麼?也許是對一種拒絕被同化的生存意識,一種會死而無憾的人生。但身為一個不知何時才能下班的打工仔,一個其實愛文學和創作但終日面對數字和商業策略圖表的夢想家,這是一種永遠難以捉摸和實現的理想。

 

大多數(有寫年份的)文字都是主角(作者)在大學時寫的。其餘的則是在辦公室午餐時間或其他罕有的空閒時間編寫的。」—作者個人描述
