Anti-static, weird recharge. Through and down into the ground, the earth swallows and it disappears. A speculated energy, the interest in these flows is only narrative. Often, a missed connection—insert something into it, pass a current through it—a spiritual connection. Almost, a Frankenstein moment.

HOLY MOTORS is a display window of a motorbike mechanic in Sham Shui Po. A series of projects to unfold over the year 2016 propose both alternative futurities and revisionist histories for Hong Kong, considering technology as sensual and sensuality as synthetic. Hong Kong as a space of disappearance is made of up of multiple fantasies and illusions. HOLY MOTORS is a series of vignettes about a city becoming.
