Shot in Hong Kong's seaside town of Sai Kung temple sea feng shui (2016)is a single channel video that maps a feng shui sightline between the historic Tin Hau temple and the seafront. Built in the 18th century for the protection of seafarers by the Sea Goddess, the temple was originally situated on the coast before massive land reclamation in the 1960's and 1970's shifted the coastline a few hundred meters east.
temple sea feng shui was presented as part of Artist Week held in conjunction with the 2016 CIRCUIT symposium Phantom Topologiesin Wellington, New Zealand. The installation includes sculpture that subjectively maps the film's location and also used display strategies in response to turning Massey University's active lighting studio into a pop up exhibition space.
