Synopsis This is a rework of Albrecht Dürer’s three well-known engravings. I am convinced that the ancient definitions of inspired melancholy from Pseudo-Aristotle was inscribed on the engravings. Our melancholy, as well as our lives, are classified into three types (or stages): imagination, reason, and intellect. I rework the concepts based on my own interpretation and emotion. Instead of engraving, I hack a popular video game to generate graphics, and present them in three-channels video installation (or screening).

Remarks shared after Festival visit

"I am glad to have this opportunity to attend a Japan event this time. It is not only a satisfied experience to show my work in front of audiences, but also a valuable and inspiring opportunity to discuss with other artists in the festival. NAE is doing a great thing indeed. The event was mostly like an art exhibition held in the well-recognized Tokas Hongo. Four Hong Kong artists showed our machinima, game videos, and game art to Japanese audiences. I had a meaningful discussion with audiences, curators, and other artists at the event opening and there may be chances for collaboration work. From this trip, surprisingly, I know more about my work, as well as myself."
