My partner spent 3 months in Hong Kong on a lecturer exchange programme, teaching graphic design. Of course she brought back ther obligatory presents, t-shirts etc. but for me it was easy, just screeds of paper picked up from the streets as she explored the city. The result is that I have a suitcase full of beautiful but indecipherable pieces of raw material for collages. She was struck by the lack of birdlife in Hong Kong, in contrast with our local experience, and this collage is a reflection of that.
