Precipitations is a video work filmed in Kowloon, Hong Kong, during the rainy spring of 2013, less a forecast than a portrait of the city, drawn via the journeys of several people involved with art and social activism to varying degrees. It falls within the precipices of an everyday and the realm of change, where such change comes about by the breadth of a footstep, with the crossing of a threshold, through the struggle for sociopolitical transformation.
Focusing on four groups spread around the vicinities of Yaumatei, one of the last remaining neighborhoods of the city with vestiges of the old, precipitation occurs as the speed and density of Hong Kong’s way of life and as movement in search of another direction.
