Castle, Valley, Anonymous Island and Their Return to the Moon (2017)  video/text/documents/objects

commissioned by Asia Art Archive (Hong Kong)

Jim disappeared into the forest on 26 March 1967. Inside his room in the Moonlight Villa, a bomoh found a script written with invisible ink, a book with sketches, some secret coordinates, plans to go to outer space, and mysterious sculptures imbued with inaudible spells. (notes: Jim is a reference to Jim Thompson, an American Silk Tycoon based in Thailand in his later life.)
