Artist bio

 Tina, Yeung Yin Ting who is an emerging artist based in Hong Kong. She majors Visual Arts at Hong Kong Baptist  University. She went to Georgia College & State University (United States) for academic exchange. Tina attempted to convey her aspects on different social issues and interpersonal relationship through her artwork which base on her own experience.

 Most of her work inspired by personal feelings in different periods. In “Tiny Things” which is a scanography series, Tina expressed her struggles and doubts on nowadays people thoughts, social issue and her relationship problems. The main objects of whole series – plastic toy, elastic and tiny toy dinosaur. She is sensitives with color contrasting and material flexibilities which created extraordinary combinations of each scanography work.

 Instead of using traditional art forms like painting and sculpture, she is attracted by unique and experimental art forms like moving image, photography crossover sculpture, and scanography. Apart from her sensibility on images, she also challenged performance art crossover videography. She created an invitational artwork — “Scan on Scars” allowed audience scanned the QR code on her body. This artwork is attempted to share her being bullied experience which breaks through the boundary between audience and artist.


Artist statement

Inspired by the recent trends of social media platforms, TikTok a video creation app has been turning into a craze for many people to produce videos that can be nonsensical. In view of this, the artist attempts to use a cinema set-up to create a huge contrast and subversion between traditional movies and Tik Tok videos. 

A word that was invented by a well-known writer Wong Yeung Tat - "Saline culture". Saline drip is used for instilling nutrition to a patient instead of eating food. The contents of TikTok instills no thought process. Instead, it brings out an immediate unconscious effect on a person. 

The artist aims to exaggerate the importance of time period; she designs a series of an interactive setting for the movie ticket. Generally, considering the fixed time length is 45 minutes for television shows, 1 hour 30 minutes for one movie. The extent of the video length of this artwork would depend on the moment of entrance and departure from the cinema (the starting duration to the end in which will be recorded by themselves).

  • Take video with boring content with TikTok music (e.g. the microwave is running)  

 Set-up ideas

 • Testing for the exit signboard ➡ either white or black background ➡ black is the final choice  

 • Also played with the" location" on mapping node, just like scrolling LED sign (consider to make a video for making a scrolling LED sign) 


 • Some documentation for the setup so far. The gallery without any wall is quite surreal 

 • The whole approach of my work will be a cinema with only one exit and entrance specifically (the reason will be explained in another paragraph) 

 • The queue stands will block another two entrances and exits which connect to other classmates galleries

The outcome of the movie ticket (the audience will write down the ended time of watching my movie ) 


 • Design of the movie ticket vending machine   (as movie tickets also have same color palette)
