Title:

The Shortcut to the Systematic Life: City Spirits

Author: Tsui Kuang-Yu
Description:

This work was developed during a residency at Gasworks in London, with shooting completed in Taipei, Taiwan. I explore the social dynamics of urban spaces in a series of actions that test and subvert the invisible norms that govern our use of public spaces. I am using a series of actions to re-discover and re-present the city from a different perspective, one that absurdly challenges the use of spaces and makes us think about how we interact with them.
