“Objects exist because of functionality. However, if their function has been removed, what is the meaning of it? Do they have any value left for their existence?”

Based on his curiosity towards human’s perception of ordinary everyday objects, Leung built the concept of TRANS-FIGURATION exploring how objects’ meaning and purpose can be destroyed when put into unfamiliar settings as captured through his lens.
