We Each Walked 2,000 Kilometres To Say Goodby

Upon The Escalator


Silas Fong

Fong works with moving images especially on video. With an intense interest in time and space, his research topics mainly explore the urban city life and subtleness in interpersonal relationships. From the very beginning of his art practice, he already has an obsession to strangers. This curiosity drives his art through personal engagement and intimate experience. His work lies in the field between traditional visual art perspectives and with a growing tension to new media art. Recently he experiments on alternative narrative of memories.
