From the 2010 This Is Not A Gateway Festival Programme 

Ashley Wong and Nicolas Sauret:  

NønSpace: The Elusive Haze of Space/Place of Hong Kong

11:00-12:30 & 15:00-16:30 / 22-24 October 2010

"Through its unique history, geography and politics, Hong Kong has sprouted from a small Chinese fishing village to a globalized financial city. From British influence of Western capitalism to a return to long lost Chinese reality, Hong Kong has formed into a place of in-betweenness. Through interwoven voice interviews with artists, academics, architects, NønSpace approaches notions of space to reveal aspects of a city and culture that is difficult (and perhaps impossible) to underpin."
