In the short piece below, director Ringo Tang takes us through the LED light work of artist Jenny Holzer, now on display in Hong Kong.
Says Holzer about why she uses so much text in her work, "I like to provide different opportunities for people to read. When someone traces text cut in stone with their hand, that’s a very different experience to when one sees something in light flashing by. I might choose stone if it’s a text that’s meant to be immemorial, but if it’s a series of poetry I might want to use projected light. When a poem in light caresses a building, or floats across a river and glides over trees, it can be just right."
