Siu Wai Hang
Siu Wai Hang sets out to observe and explore the visible and invisible borders on campuses and in community spaces with students, using a special device that employs the camera obscura concept (forerunner of the modern camera). Together, they will reflect on conventional boundaries and roles surrounding issues such as power, ethnicity, and gender. Their collaborative creative efforts will culminate in an evolving installation that reexamines the meaning of "borders".
Photography artist Siu Wai Hang holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Creative Media from School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. He earned his Master of Fine Arts from Department of Fine Arts, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In 2014, he won the WYNG Masters Award.

Tang Kwok Hin
Slang reflects social reality and reveals hidden history. Tang Kwok Hin will invite students to interpret Cantonese dialect and slang vocabulary originating from different generations to stimulate their understanding of the lives of different generations. Students will reimagine new and disappearing words and phrases through writing, sketching, and mulitimedia. Tang will create ''teaching materials'' with alternative narratives based on this reimagined language and art.
Tang Kwok Hin is a mixed media artist, independent curator, and writer. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2008 and Bachelor of Arts (major in Fine Arts) in 2006. His art focuses on space, time, and symbols; he explores hidden rules of life and existence in his work. He participated in the 15th WRO Media Art Biennale (2013); Hong Kong Contemporary Art Biennial Awards (2009); and the Discoveries section of the first Art Basel in Hong Kong with a solo presentation. His work has been exhibited at Ice Palace, United States; Osthaus Museum Hagen, Germany; Singapore Art Museum; Venice Arsenale, Italy; Hong Kong Museum of Art; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan.
