[Dis/Re]connected: Through the V Senses

In dense urban centres such as Hong Kong, humans can at times feel disconnected from nature, surrounded by concrete blocks and glass buildings.

In reconnecting with nature, this is a personal journey that looks different for everyone.

By isolating our senses and grounding ourselves through nature this way, it is a meditative experience that can be the first step towards rethinking how we connect with nature physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

By using an immersive approach, I hope that the viewer will not only feel a sense of re-connection, but that they’ll also take these practices into their daily lives - and start their own journey.

First published in Hong Kong Free Press: Lens.
