Display Distribute is a point of sales located in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Wedged between a lighting shop and a dry goods store, the 100 square foot space hosts a roving cast of vendors, selling everything from fake designer handbags to life insurance. Taking the space, its vendors, wares and customers as its starting point, the project traces the wider networks defining its activities in order to examine themes of urbanisation and shifting modes of production and consumption.

About the “Workbook” Series //
Modes Vu’s “Workbook” series is a bridge between the digital image and the printed photobook.
Being digitally printed, costs associated with print publishing are significantly lowered as the minimum print run is zero copies. By lowering costs, it is possible to evade the discipline introduced by the calculation necessary for all economic activity and to retain the creative freedom of the digital medium. This way, the quality of the digital image is passed into print and the hands of our viewers.
With a few exceptions, the Workbooks follow the format of books sized 4.5” x 6” with 48 pages of images. The focus is mainly on previously unpublished photographers, and Modes Vu works closely with them to develop the books.
