Title: I Mist You
Subtitle: Create a spaceless & timeless ritual
Well, It has been a while, two and a half years since I last talked to you. I’m doing well in life. I understand we all will lose someone we love at some point in our life, however the loss can often hit us anytime, anywhere and in harder than we expect— much to our chagrin.
Guess what, shortage and long-distance of burial space are familiar problems for anyone who lives in a city, especially Hong Kong, actually no more large-scale cemetery built. But it’s fine, I dislike the crowded and very far cemetery anyway, I like being inside this mist to commemorate our memories permissively without timed-reminder.
So I searched for closest stop, walked here and customized the ‘misting-space’ on screen— picked your favorite songs, skirt’s color, and cake flavour which you used to make for my birthday… I’m feeling you stay connected with me during this time.
I may not have you here physically but I keep you in heart always… Ah! I forgot how long I stay here, but for now it’s time to let life play out.
This’s just a ritual.
I’m getting out, but you know…
I mist you——
