[17.09.20] Our goal

Under normal circumstances, it keeps balances between human's "ego" and "self" somewhat. But in Hong Kong, Kana's "self" part is too small and "ego" is bigger. For the people of Hong Kong, Kana is 'other' and because Kana is not accepted as Kana (or Japanese) is.Kana's ultimate goal is to find self through integrate with Hong Kong, though we may still be 'others' over time.

We attempted to find identity in this strange city, balancing between our ” ego” and ” self” . “Ego” is how I see myself, and “self” is related to how other people might see me. Ex.: I am Japanese, but other people see me as Hong Kong people, this way I feel that my “ego” is conflicting with my “self” .
