Reflecting our inner selves instead of our outer appearances, the sea in the mirror is parallel to our mind; at times peaceful, at times violent. One thing for sure is that our stream of thoughts is much akin to the ocean waves that never stop.

What do you feel looking at the mirror?

Inspired by the coexistence of the nature reserves and the concrete jungle in Singapore, this work tells a story from the perspectives of the humanities and nature through two protagonists. Screening through a remodeled antique film camera, the installation further highlights the complexities between the portrayed, the perceived, and the reality.⠀

Come find out what happens to the two protagonists in "A Story in Camera" and join them on their adventures! ⠀

You can't see it or touch it, but you feel its presence affecting you, now and always, like shadows cast on you that you just can't escape from.⠀

Upon travelling to Southeast Asia, Hu Weiyi observed that the warmness and friendliness displayed by the locals differed vastly from the preconceived notions that it is a dangerous and violent region. The stereotypical views contrasted with his personal experiences to inspire this work "Shadow of a Doubt", as Hu questions the relationship between the imagined and the reality.⠀

Chancing upon this lone tree after the rain, the Man Tree stands tall and proud above everything else, exuding an aura so strong that the artist couldn't help but keep his gaze fixed on it.⠀

Spending more than an hour trying to capture the aura of the tree, this is the artist's attempt to relay what he experienced at that moment to the audience.⠀
