Beyond the current practice depicts the relationship between intimacy and public space. This series of images were made in the public spaces that had sexual intercourse before—the spotlight metaphors the imagination to the past, which explores diachronic and spatial experience.
 
Light, traditionally, refers to hope and the future. However, the nature of photography is “recording” or “documenting” the has-had-been. I extend this concept to a social context which is about public sex in Hong Kong. I wonder what the reason for all these intimate actions that happened in public is, is it just because of enthusiasm, or the society in Hong Kong is in lack of space.
 
Interestingly, the spotlight seems to offer a way to imagine the past. I was keen to know the moment that passed in order to get some inspiration for the future. No answer is on my head even I completed the project, but a glimpse of love and youth.
