  • Title: Extraordinary Accident: an immersive metaphor of Hong Kong
    Writing Type: Paper

    Exhibition: SIGGRAPH Asia 2019: Deep Dreaming
    Abstract Summary:

    This paper presents Extraordinary Accident, an immersive experience exploring how different levels of abstraction can coexist and collaborate in a representation and recreation of urban space. Using Hong Kong as both inspiration and data source, the work attempts to liberate virtual reality compositions from their metaphorical ballast –that is, their recreational onus– and instead, with a temporal amalgamation of poetic representation at different scales, contribute to an alternative, potentially more intimate, understanding of the urban experience.
