This experimental animation film allows the observation of Hong Kong’s built environment from the conceptual perspective of celluloid film and accordingly applies techniques of film animation to the medium of photography. The city’s characteristic architecture, with its apartment blocks towering over the horizon, is reimagined as parallel rows of film strips, thus reducing its formal language to one aspect: serial parallels.
