"Upon the North Point a torrential downpour of instants tease their way into sight, but never fully form. Shutter-induced memories reduced to speckles, dissipating into fog. Here, my initial disappointments in a material defect morph into opportunity - satisfying an itch to melt instances together, to see any number of places as one.

I want to go home. These images were meant to show us what goes where but I can't make out the path. Maybe we should lay the pieces out on the floor and try to put them back together. In another five days I'll need to leave" – Simon Liu

“Personal moments are lost in film cuttings or disappear into a coloured fog only to suddenly reappear in a new constellation. This is the visual richness of Highview: four, partially overlapping, 16mm images that fully coalesce into a colourful abstract painting but also create a narrative as an exploded montage.” — Description from the IFFR
