A Living Space is an art project aiming to explore the intrinsic quality and possibility of life through a range of observation, exploration and research. The project centred on a Hakka village called Pak Sha O in Hong Kong, which is one of the remaining well-preserved traditional village in the territory, yet most of the residents are now western foreigners. They renovated the interior of the houses in modern western style, but at the same time maintaining and respecting the traditional architecture of Hakka style of the houses.

The research examines and reviews the value as well as the essence of housing and living in Hong Kong, a highly urbanized city, through unpacking the history of a old village, looking back into the rural life among the indigenous peoples’ oral history and intimate images of them.

We have been working and researching on that specific location with a creative team leaded by Wong Suk Ki and a member, Matthew Kwan Long Hei for two years. The creative process of the two-year research has finally built up as a over 300-page publication, including cooperative text and photography works from various artists. We took part in designing the book, with the engaging experiences of the place. Along with the publication, invitation cards and leaflet are designed as promotional materials for the book launch event.
