Artists’ Studios and Their Practices In Kwun Tong Industrial Buildings: A Hyper-video ethnographic study

Anson Hoi Shan Mak

Abstract


This is a research-creative project, in which the topic of research, research methods and ways of presenting research findings are essential concern. This project shows ways artists/designers live and work in the vibrant Kwun Tong area. Since the late 1980’s, factories have begun to move to Mainland China. Then, various types of small businesses and creative industries and artists have been moving in. Gradually, they turn the town into a creative community/cluster. However, since 2010, the Hong Kong Government introduced the Policy of Revitalization of Factory Buildings. This problematic policy has brought terrible destruction to the area and caused unaffordable property prices. The web site features creative folks in twenty-five studios working on various media. Ethnographic video and academic findings are presented in a hyper-video web-site that works together with edited transcription. 
The hyper-video web site was launched in July 2015. URL of the project:
