LEUNG Chi Wo Block Game 2006
The frame of the classical Chinese windows were filled up with wooden blocks which were then made use for building a pseudio-architectural model. The making of this "townscape" is out of the changing light/darkness of the "windowscape".
A video covering the whole process including the interaction between the artist and those who run into the scene is projected underneath the wooden model.
