Urban Cage is a theme capturing the emotional transitions of immigrants resettling and renewing their lives in any city. Urban Cage started with Fina’s first cardboard installation, a reminiscence of her first home, Hong Kong, an overpopulated city where the poor live in cage-like homes large enough to fit a person and few belongings.
Alongside the cardboard installation is an experimental film The Punk Snow White And The Bitch. Fina expresses her emotional relationship with living in another city, New York. The Film was shown in the exhibition TYPECAST at Hillyer Art Space, Washington DC, and the show was juried by Jarvis DuBois.
