artist statement

believe‭, ‬therefore I see
Forty years ago‭, ‬I bravely‭ ‬become a member of the media‭ ‬
and started publishing Tomorrow’s Daily‭. ‬People often‭ ‬
say to publish a newspaper is like gambling‭, ‬you can never make money out of it‭. ‬And they say it is for manipulating and fabricating public opinion‭.‬
In 2007‭, ‬everyone in the city is either reviewing or criticising the‭ ‬“ten years since handover”‭. ‬I am sure if we have a positive mindset we can always learn a good lesson‭. ‬For me‭, ‬how positive is our mindset is exactly an issue‭, ‬
a‭ ‬“state of Hong Kong affairs”‭ ‬I am concerned about‭.‬
I am delighted to have a group of‭ ‬“journalists”‭ ‬and‭ ‬“critics”‭ ‬accept my invitation to write about the yet-to-happen news of 1‭ ‬July 2047‭, ‬that is‭, ‬the day when one country two system officially will come to an end‭.‬
This group of people included writers‭, ‬critics‭, ‬creative minds‭, ‬even students‭. ‬They imagined the news with different‭ ‬
points of view‭, ‬collectively representing how we feel about‭ ‬
Hong Kong‭, ‬our hopes and expectations‭…‬
People would always say‭ ‬“I see‭, ‬therefore I believe”‭, ‬that is how we feel‭ ‬towards Hong Kong and our Chief Executive‭. ‬And when the tides turn‭, ‬we have to use the power‭ ‬
of our mind and say‭ ‬“I see‭, ‬therefore I believe”‭, ‬
even to the extent‭ ‬“I believe‭, ‬therefore I see”‭. ‬
Seriously‭, ‬isn’t this our philosophy when speculating‭ ‬
in the property and stock markets‭?‬
This is how I started this newspaper‭, ‬to put together‭ ‬
a collective mind to ponder what exactly does‭ ‬
“love Hong Kong love my country”‭ ‬mean‭.‬
In Buddhist teachings‭, ‬this is called karma‭.‬
This is Hong Kong‭, ‬in your mind‭, ‬in‭ ‬your heart‭.‬
I wish that seven millions of positive minds will be with me‭.‬
I wish that this newspaper will be published every ten years‭, ‬or perhaps every year‭.‬

我相信所以我看見
四十年前的今天,我勇敢地踏足傳媒,辦了份叫《明天日報》的報章。
人們常說辦報是賭博,賺不了錢。
又說辦報是為了控制社會言論和製造及創造社會聲音⋯⋯
在2007年,全城都在回想回歸剛過去的十年,或檢討批評這個
「香港十年」,鬧得熱烘烘的。
無可厚非,用正面積極的平常心一定可以從中溫故知新,從經驗中學習。對我來說,當年的香港正面積極之心有多大就是一個議題,一個我關心的「香港事務」。
幸好得到一班「記者」及「評論人」接受我的邀請,齊齊動筆寫未知的
明天新聞,寫關於2047年7月1日,就是一國兩制正式完結當天的
香港新聞。
這不是一般看來的荒唐無稽,天馬行空的不著邊際。這反而是一個
「瞻前顧後」的學習,對未來的正面和希望的一個反射⋯⋯
特約記者、評論員及編輯隊伍是由二十多位資歷有深有淺的作家、
社會評論專家、非文字創作人、廣告人以至大學、中學生組成。
他們的想像新聞從不同角度,作出一個小小的宏觀,代表了我們對香港的心情,對香港的憧憬和我們對未來的期盼⋯⋯
人們的想法總是「我看見所以我相信」,對人對港對特首對中國如是。
但當時勢不就的當下,「念力」就要派上用場;
「我看見所以我相信」,同時極應做到「我相信所以我看見」。說笑的講,這「我相信所以我看見」不曾就是大家用來炒樓炒股的哲學觀嗎?
當日就是這個信念,開始了這份報紙,叫大家集合眾人的思維,反映
一下每個不同年代的狀況,亦想就此叫大家想一想自身,想一想甚麼是真正的「愛港愛國」。
佛說這叫做業力(karma)。
我們香港的共業在你的手上,你的腦袋裡,你的心中。
願七百多萬個正面積極的念力與我同在。
願這《明天日報》能在每個十年,甚至每年與大家再次見面。
