Choi Sai Ho

Choi Sai Ho, Space Within Space, 2019, media art, video art, sound art. 
Nominated by Geoff Wong, Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre

Without civilisation and light pollution, what would the view of the night sky from planet earth look like? In other multiverses, what does the space sound like?

Sai Ho (HK) reconstructs time and space by images and sound to create another “space” — an imagination of a parallel time and space. Through his work, audiences are invited to consider the enormous and barren universe, and observe the formation and the evolution of nebulas.

The visuals are made from dropping pigments, and the soundtrack is a blend of sounds from a range of sources — percussion instruments, a melody inspired by the planet’s electromagnetic movements, and a field recording from Devil’s Dyke, UK.
