  • Fenwick Pier 分域碼頭

Home 家

Fenwick Pier used to be where marines set their first step on, after they set off a long journey from home.
They came here, searched for paintings, china decorations, tailor-made suits… some beautiful memories to bring back home.
If you have to share a reminiscence of Hong Kong to an outlander, what sounds do you recall?

分域碼頭曾經是海軍離家後,踏足香港的第一個地方。
他們來到,買畫,買瓷器,造西裝,想像自己帶一點美好的回憶回去。
若要你分一片香港的聲音給異地人,你會想起什麼?

The End 荼蘼

At the end of the day, our murmurings are not something metaphysical, but our conversations on food and people we care about are what we hold close to our hearts. The subtle sounds laid beneath the small talks — scratches from grass, distant sound of a train passing by, became the direct indicators of the unique soundscape of the space.

Standing at a pier that no longer has ship moored, what do you hear? Underneath the white noise of the crowd, are there any sounds that will lead you to a moment in the future?

在完結的一瞬,留下的人語,談的不過柴米油鹽日常事。但踏過草地的細碎腳步聲、列車聲,成為了記認環境的獨特聲紋。

在再無船隻停泊的碼頭,你聽到什麼細語人聲?在人潮的白噪音底下,有什麼其他的聲音,將會成為未來回憶的座標?
