I have two foreign fetishes, and you may not share the first: I love listening to BBC interviews of foreign politicians with super-thick accents who nevertheless speak more articulate English than I can. The second, I hope you do share: A love of seeing creative and manufacturing spaces in other countries. I could stare at photos of Parisian ateliers, Swedish factory floors and Tokyo design studios all day.
This CoSPACE CoCREATE video by Stylo Vision, a/k/a filmmaker Thomas Lee, takes a fleeting look at such spaces in cramped Hong Kong.
To make the video Lee lensed the workspaces of handmade leather shoe workshop Shoe Artistry, product design firm KaCaMa Design Lab, product design firm Milk Design, farmer/artist/designer collective HK Farm, and fashion label Daydream Nation. I kept wondering "Why the hell isn't there any narrative?" but as it turns out, this short is just a trailer, comprised of piecemeal scraps from individual vids he shot of each outfit. Stay tuned for the ID-relevant ones.
