Be OK is Keny Chan’s debut music video. It delves into the symbolism of water, the essence of all carbon-based life forms, and the limitations it imposes on our existence. Inspired by the dual nature of water, the video portrays water as a symbolic deity that holds power of creation and destruction. Through a time loop narrative, it captures the suffocating conflict between introversion and the desire to connect with the outside world.
2018 - Freedom ︎
Director, Animator, Music: Keny Chan
Freedom is a 3D video art project which depicts the anxiety of Keny finding themselves in a dilemma between the selective freedom of the west and the homeland's censorship. It explores the disillusionment of immigrant individuals who discover that the promised liberties advertised in western media may not align with their lived experiences. Growing up looking at the west through the lens of Pop cultures, where such issues were not frequently referred, Keny reflects on the decision to leave the perceived "cage" of their homeland, questioning the true value of their newfound freedom in the face of unexpected realities.
