Urban Floating Islands is an art creation from ArchiBlur Lab in 2016. By moving from site to site in different range of area, the Floating Islands are made to let citizens tell the stories of their own. With the local history that has been found, told and sense again, it shows the intimate interaction between citizens and the history events. The speaker would share the concept of Urban Floating Islands to Hong Kong citizens and artists by talking the constructing relationships between art creations, lands, cities and citizens. Expecting to bring some new energy for both Hong Kong and Taiwan.
