In our recent video Manifesto 2 Artists’ Workshops, Natalie A. Chao said the camera was there to protect herself on the many street events in Hong Kong since 2019. She questioned the camera’s invasive nature and wonder how her camera thinks. Textualizing images she “gleaned” in writing is then a necessary part of the imaging event. Here is a set of notes Natalie wrote while reflecting on a film she made, Are We All Wilderness? (2019), revised this year.
