Off Power is about electricity. Started with architectural and urban planning analysis of Hong Kong Island, it slowly derives to an imagination of a science-fiction world. In an imagined future, the electricity coming from Lamma Island is cut. Therefore, the entire Hong Kong Island stays in the darkness.

《Off Power》是一部關於「電」的藝術作品。藝術家對香港島的建築和城市規劃做研究並 受其啟發,創作這部如科幻小說的媒體作品。在藝術家的虛構世界中,南丫島停止提供電力 ,令整個香港島陷入一片漆黑。
