Abstract

8 minutes across was produced in response to the exhibition theme: 'Voyage: sea journeys, island hopping and trans-oceanic concepts'. An 8 page concertina book with pages that decrease in size to denote the passing of time on the short Star Ferry journey between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Each page represents one minute of the voyage across Victoria Harbour and is a typographic exploration of the crossing, the ferry�s environment and the surrounding landscape. Drilled wooden covers replicate the onboard seating.
