You build a home in my mind 心之房,Florence Lee

You build a home in my mind 心之房 (2023) 

Translating and encapsulating the director's personal childhood experiences as well as past lived experiences, You build a home in my mind comprises of playground rides, the everyday scenery outside the window of the artist's studio, and unique, special objects recalled from memories—weaving together a melody that lures the viewers to roam and wander. As the boat navigates between reality and imagination, resembling a journey of constant loss and persistent search, the scenes become slightly different when they reappear, these scenes alluding to the repetitiveness and uncertainty of life.

Park Voyage is a series of hand-drawn animations commissioned in 2022 by M+ Museum. Inspired by Shek Kip Mei Park, the bike lanes in the New Territories’ township of Sha Tin, and M+ museum, Florence Lee’s expressive animation takes viewers on an imaginary ride through a Hong Kong playground and subway tunnel. Geometric shapes, gestural linework, and rich colours create a fanciful space that intertwines memory and everyday life.


Elephant in Castle 城堡裡的大象 (2021)

Elephant in Castle (2021) is a 2D digital animation, using a hand-drawn frame-by-frame process to create subtle abstract narratives. The work expresses a constant change within the artist’s inner world, depicting the emotional, aesthetic, and tactile responses that she has to Hong Kong, the city where she grew up. Stepping into a new decade, the world is coming to an unprecedented and critical moment in history. The film could be a reflection conveyed by the artist's sentimental responses to the stories/memories that took place in Hong Kong.
