This is an experiment in spatial humour, and this assumption of humour can be applied to any urban space. Since this project starts with Lingnan University’s support of its Artist-in-Residence Program, it would seem appropriate to base the experiment around the university campus. Two straight lines were laid on the map of Tuen Mun. The lines extend to East-West through the ridge. The line to the South stretches across the valley and ends on the South coast. Two transects span a wide variety spaces and urban life in Tuen Mun. They would become the premises of this experiment. Exploring the two fixed paths, the artist observes and discovers potential humour along the route. This methodology was adapted from census data collection of marine life, in which marine biologists follow a selected transect across the sea floor and record the species of plants and sea animal encountered.
