Choi Kit Wang’s work explores the relationship of space and time - the ever-changing city fabrics, the cause and effect on the built environment. Choi and his team’s work is notable for the methodology of carrying out time & space exploration with the use of a diversity of media animations, films, installations, exhibitions - and means of material - paper, concrete, electronics, smoke, light, air - to express architectural ideas without the presence of architecture, in which the boundary of the natural, the social and the artificial is blurred.
