Dear Jing/Nostalgia X

2018, duration 3m 50s. Dear Jing/Nostalgia X is a two-channel video installation that presents a fictive journey, told by a narrator who is reminiscing on an ex-lover (Jing), whom he had met very shortly while traveling through tourist-trapped locations around Hong Kong. The narrator speaks on a tv-screen, while behind is a large projection of images that serve as a visualization of his thoughts, memories, fantasies, and moreover, his darker emotions within anger and desire. The narrator is in reality an actor who had been chosen, by the artist, on an online gig website to do perform her fictive confessional letters to non-existent Jing on webcam in exchange for 17 US dollars.
