Rooftops in our city are either luxurious private territories or outlets for exhaust-pipes and ventilators - they are unnoticed, sometimes wasted. OPEN ROOF is about listening to and on rooftops and balconies. It is a call to set free a layer of urban life from the routines of looking up and looking past. It is a call to imagine the in-between. OPEN ROOF is also about caring for rooftops as unique and endangered soundscapes of Hong Kong. Imagine standing in urban enclaves hewn out by the drones of the low and the screeching winds of the high - our ears are bigger than we think.
