6,426 per km2 by Greer Muldowney

Boston based fine art photographer Greer Muldowney was selected by the SCAD faculty to work on a documentary project in the Sham Shui Po district of Hong Kong. The result is her thesis exhibition, titled “6,426 per km2”

At 6,426 people per km2, Hong Kong boasts the most densely populated urban center in the world. The reality of sustainable practices, depletion of resources and a shifting global power paradigm pervade media involving China, and its Western syndicate territory, Hong Kong. By making imagery in this unique region(both socially and politically), I ask viewers to contemplate these issues, but to also see these places as homes; not statistics. As the living cities and infrastructure that address cultural standards and progressive technologies. These photographs do not propose a reality so different from the spin of contemporary media, but asks an audience on the other side of the world, the Western world, to reflect on whether these images provide a surrogate for wonderment or trepidation for a changing global climate and future.
