Bus No. 7

Ho Tam

2001, 03:00 minutes, colour, music


Bus No. 7 is about the bus that the artist used to take when he was a child living in Hong Kong. The bus is a symbol of adventure. With fond memories, Ho Tam recreates his first experience going out to explore the world. Imitating the child's point of view, the bus seen in the video is playful and filled with life of its own, running through the city streets day and night.
