Begin with personal experiences of dream, I researched the collective unconscious and imagery of Hong Kong citizens. Rearranging into imagery poem by moving images, experiencing collective dreams, floating in the sea of Victoria, far away and yet close.

“The poet's conviction that he is creating in absolute freedom would then be an illusion: he fancies he is swimming, but in reality an unseen current sweeps him along.” Carl Jung: Psychology and Literature, 1994
從自身經驗出發,發掘香港人的集體潛意識與意象語言,重新編寫成一首香港的意象詩,發一場集體的夢,浮遊在維多利亞的海,既遠亦近。

「詩人們深信自己是在絕對自由中進行創作,但其實卻不過是一種幻想;他想像他是在游泳,其實卻是一股看不見的暗流在把他卷走。」(榮格:心理學與文學,1994)
