Wend a Way Media Arts Exhibition by Lau Ching-wa Jess
Red Lights Brake on Nathan Road
Using the Street View function of Google Maps, Lau walked back and forth in the virtual world of Nathan Road, collecting images of the red lights and street signs on Nathan Road, Hong Kong at different times. These images are presented in a dual-channel video installation. The time and space of Nathan Road is digitized and stored in the online world; Lau attempts to reconstruct her memory of the thoroughfare of the city via this digitization of images.
