The mutualistic relationship between China and Hong Kong is impermanent in nature. Their co-existence have proven their difference is much less significant that you would imagine, and even that is vanishing rapidly.  In a small alley in the Yaumatei district of Hong Kong, under the neon signs of Currency Exchange shop, Ip installed 2 vertical video display showcasing 2 such shops where Chinese Yuen and Hong Kong Dollar exchanges hands by those who cross the borders daily from both side of the Lo Wu River.  Hundred of thousands of travellers cross the HK/ SZ border everyday. This daily ritual is so repetitive, it’s almost meditative. The interdependency of the two rapidly grinding away their differences, as they merge into a unified identity of an unknown nature.
