Pok Pok, a soi Convent project (2021)
Technique /Materials : Video-Collage, Animation

"Pok Pok" is a short video tribute to the cultural diversity of the residents and people from Soi Convent, an area in Bangkok deeply impacted by Covid, gentrification, and economic shifts. Through collage and stop-motion animation, the video flips the roles and scales, highlighting the people of Soi Convent and giving visibility and prominence over the offices and infrastructure that surround them. The video also celebrates the community's resilience and adaptability in the face of social and economic change. The title "Pok Pok" refers to the sound of the mortar used by Somtum vendors, a popular food among taxi drivers, office workers, and construction workers in the area.
