Making an IED
Single channel video; HD, color, no sound
The IED created in the video resemble a homemade bomb & text as shown in a picture of the 1967 riot. Without reference to how to make a real bomb, I use daily objects to create the IED (Improvised Exhibition Device) or suspicious objects. All the materials are purchased from IKEA. The video was taken in an abandoned industrial building unit in To Kwa Wan, it used to be a Christmas decorations factory. The owner is an old friend of my father, they were classmates before they moved to HK from Guangdong. The building is going to be demolished anytime soon.
