In Dialogue with Kacey Wong

Dr. Kacey Wong is going to talk about his video work The Quarantine for disCONNECT HK and discuss with HKwalls, Maria Wong about his artistic process during the pandemic.

It questions what if living in a completely isolated dystopian world is not a hypothesis, but a must in order to survive.
