Sea Chicken

Sea Chicken is an experimental short memoir on a migration story of a Canadian born Hong Kongese who dislocated to HK in the British colonial era.

The personal journey can be seen relevant to current discourses of Asian-diasporas identities, xenophobia, and Hong Kong’s political turbulence with identity confusions.

The visual elements were combined and generated by gaming software.

Its intentionally low-resolution creates a nostalgia of the 90s of HK’s colonial time before its political handover to China (1997).

The script is portrayed by a human-bird voice with affections, stating an alienation to its diasporas character.
