Eden Tse: Architectures of Coexistences

My visual ethnographic project uses photography to document how Migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong adjust to and expand the boundaries of everyday living by occupying public and liminal spaces and declaring their coexistence with others in the city. During the pandemic, they exercise extra caution by creating spontaneous and adaptable cardboard structures by making creative use of surplus material, literally carving out separate pockets of space from pedestrians and passersby.
