Hyper Heritage


This performance tour travels through the real and imaginary heritage of Hong Kong, as it is featured in cinema. Made with the assistance of MA students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, it was first presented in the Saving the Past for the Present Festival at the Jockey Club Creative Arts Centre and on the streets of Sham Shui Po and Shek Kip Mei.

The Wealth of Nations


This is a new work in development which inscribes Adam Smith’s classic economic treatise from 1776 onto a contemporary Chinese shopping mall district. Presented in the form of an audio tour, this is a form of collage that allows both the text to offer a commentary on the site and the site to inform our understanding of this seminal text. This is a free event but reservation is necessary via the Contact page. Xinjiekou, Nanjing City Centre

Reading the Internet: On Migration




Bill contributed a video interview, recorded on the streets of Nanjing, for the event Reading the Internet. This was in response to questions posed by curator Alessandra Cianetti such as:


Bill, in our email exchange you mentioned that for you Brexit started five years ago because the income-based law for British citizens married to non-UK ones does not allow you to move back to the UK with your Chinese partner. This has suddenly built walls that you were probably not expecting. How has this been impacting on you both as an individual and practitioner?


The full interview is available online on Something Other
