​ 「九七回歸,我很高興」作品的靈感來自於九七期間市面上鋪天蓋地極度歡樂的橫額。看著
那些重複的句子,令人不禁猜測重覆得多會不會有混亂?會不會變成「我很九(狗)」「我很
興(忿怒)」?九七回歸香港傳媒都論述得很歌舞昇平,但許多人看到的事實卻是另一回事,很多
人都是逆來順受,私底下會埋怨,用九七來開玩笑,不會出來抗爭。作品是文字遊戲,亦具裝置性
質,嘗試建立一種鋪天蓋地透不過氣來的環境。

The art work was inspired by the banners on the streets during the handover period. The exaggerated happy statements
were kind of weird for lots of local people. Looking at these repeated empty statements, one might wonder if they will
make mistakes if they continue to say it again and again. If some of the words were missing, the meanings of the words
can be the opposite. It will not be "happy" anymore, it will be "angry". The installation is a play of Chinese characters
and tried to build a relatively overwhelming breathless atmosphere.
