via Zoom

A City Archived event
Registration required

A good way to “archive” a city—that is, to document the history of a city—is to follow its radio programs, and an excellent way to understand an archived city is to talk to disc jockeys (DJs) who produce radio programs. In the next public webinar for the “City Archived” series, the Hong Kong Studies Initiative is pleased to present former DJ Mini Choi and media artist Michael Lee, both of whom have deep roots in various media outlets in Hong Kong from 1997 to 2020.

Mini Choi is an interdisciplinary artist who has cast herself in roles as a broadcaster, author, lyricist, director, columnist, painter, and gallerist. Mini worked as DJ, Producer, Music Director, and Content Development Strategist at Commercial Radio Hong Kong, the most popular radio channel for the younger generation. She also worked for TVB, Now TV (HK), HK Cable TV, and RTHK. As an award-winning lyricist, Mini has published five books and over three hundred lyrics.

Michael Lee, a.k.a. michaelmichaelmichael, is a designer, a media artist, as well as a co-founder of “Mini and Michael Gallerists” and “PRESS MINI.” Michael were Director of Multimedia Services and Creative Director at Commercial Radio Hong Kong, Chief Designer at PCCW, and Art Director at TVB. As an artist, michaelmichaelmichael’s works have been shown in China, Japan, Taiwan, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, among many other countries.
