"Being Patient Again" (2020) consists of mud balls which the artist collected from the area of Ma Shi Po, completely dried out and arranged in an orderly manner on a metal plate. Accompanying the display is a soundscape the artist recorded when she rehydrated them (as the water filled up the pores, it produces sounds similar to the ambient sounds of a forest). The installation asks the audience to listen closely to the land and the sounds that are produced by a given terroir.⁠⠀
