Singaporean artist Sarah Choo Jing will present her solo exhibit Flights of the Mind at Art Projects Gallery, Hong Kong, later this month

Having recently completed her MFA in Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Fine Art, University College of London, the multidisciplinary artist found inspiration for this exhibition from a unique source – Hong Kong’s public transport systems. Working with photography and digital media, she has captured the essence of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and the world-renowned electric trams, transforming the every day movement of millions of people into works of art.

In Flights of the Mind, the artist takes on the role of an anonymous voyeur, observing, capturing and reflecting casual happenings that occur on public transport. Through her work, Choo alters the dimensions of time and space. What were once scenes of mundane commuting life become beautiful images with ethereal qualities that evoke contemplation and act as windows of escape from the hectic throng.

"Over time, you begin to construct a mental map, a collection of favoured destinations and preferred routes: a labyrinth no other person could ever precisely duplicate nor reproduce. Loneliness, I began to realise, was a populated place: a city in itself," she says of the process.
