Chan Chik Yee 陳直怡
At a time when I was supposed to whole-heartedly study, I chose to daydream.
Perhaps during my youth, at a time where I should have been exploring different opportunities, I chose a stable life, living routinely, working a 9-5 job.
I chose to leave everything behind, and travelled alone to a distant place.
I picked my studies back up which I neglected in the past, and faced the challenges of not dealing with my courage appropriately during my early youthful years.
I completed my undergraduate degree in BA (Fine Art) from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) University, specializing in Sculpture, as well as obtained my Master of Visual Arts (Studio Arts and Extended Media) in Hong Kong Baptist University.
I'm not entirely sure yet, but I would like to explore everything!

Dreamt of being a farmer, bus driver, football player and geographer. Also wanted to have a sister like Vivian Chow, Hong Kong Canton pop singer.
Had been told I lacked of potential to be a sportsman. Mainly slept in classes when I was studying in secondary school.
Had a strong desire to work at managerial level in the catering industry after I gained my Bachelor Degree in the UK, majoring in Business Administration. However, I constantly changed careers paths, thus ended up not having developed anything in particular.
Studied a photography course, and completely read a book first time in my life, "Sophie's World". Afterwards, I had been selected as the artist of soundpocket's Artists' Supported Programme 2014-15. I had even quit my full time job to take art more seriously, such as being a part time warehouse worker which was unthinkable in the past. However, I am still asking myself, "what is the necessity and urgency of making art?"
讀左個攝影課程，人生首次完整地閱讀一本書，《蘇菲的世界》。跟住又誤打誤撞地成為左聲音掏腰包 「藝術家支援計劃」2014-15 年度獲選年青藝術家。為左咁樣，仲放棄左再搵長工過著散工的日子，仲無想過連倉務員都做得來。但我總未想到為什麼要做藝術？

Samson has become slow; Lucy has become fast. They have embarked on the process of switching their habitual modes of working. Why? “Just to try something different.”
Lucy said she has struggled with being fast. In it, she is letting free the sense of spontaneity. Samson doesn’t look like he’s struggling, but his extended audio-plug-hinged-rattan stick is – not long enough yet to bend the A3 space from within. More needed. Perhaps 2? No, he said 10.
It felt ok to be inside, they said. Outside, today, there was a lot of unwanted construction materials in the lane, perhaps from A3’s next door neighbors moving out. There is now no more pharmacy, no more lighting shop; 330 grocery has moved out, too.
The street has changed – it has gained back a little solemnity and quiet, self-consciously resting at a distance from glamor.
