"As white as you can" is a series that Ko Sin Tung continues to work on, focusing on images of people's houses found on the internet. After cropping out the window part, she applied paint on the window grill area in achieving a "complete" view of an unknown place. For me, the action works as a way to penetrate, release and in the same time reflect the limited situation of a private space in Hong Kong. It is also exploration in the painting skill, in imitating reality yet creating delusion, suggesting a similarity with the nature of digital image.
