Project Description

The idea of a journey

When you go on a journey you have a goal. Most of the time you have a particular place in mind and an idea of what you are going to do there. Most people follow a certain path and even plan their whole trip from the beginning to the end. A map helps you to orientate yourself in unknown places. If you get lost you asked google maps where you are and it leads you to your chosen location.

But what happens if you get lost? Maybe you end up somewhere you never would have expected. What does it feel like to get lost, being a stranger in Hong Kong?

in Hong Kong
looking for…
the unknown, unexpected, the hidden.
Where will we end up?


How close can we get to people?
What do the trips do to us?
Will our perception and our way of working together change?
How do we want to record our experiences?
Film, photo, sound, notes?
Do we want to film everything? Really everything?
