Doors in/to Cities: Hong Kong

by Min Li Chan

An inconspicuous make-shift door carved into a corrugated wall: a setting for two boys engaged in make-believe on a hot weekend afternoon --

Vis-a-vis an elaborately crafted door into a place of worship, proclaimed by golden words of wisdom and well-wishing, and enunciated by the luck of the color red.

Both provide some hint of a rich, perhaps unexpected, imagined world within.
