Chun Hei Cheng

MA work

Looking at the frame as the moving picture's fundamental element, I seek to unfold the notion of real and illusory movement. Stillness and movement are at the core of my work, through different means of expression. My body of work explores the temporal ambiguity of the image. This openness of experimental film making is my door to the essence of time-based media work.

I am motivated by the combination of sound and image, where ideas are expressed in between meaning and abstraction. This media is projecting a truly international language. It allows me to see with both my eyes and my ears.
