Reimagining coffee grounds to support the autistics Often time, the desire of people with autism to pursue a meaningful career is not understood or catered for.

For 25 years, the New Macau Association maintained financial independence and never received a dime from the Government and the Macau Foundation. We are a pro-democrat political organization in Macau. We support and promote the values of human rights, democracy and the rule of law and we regularly engage with the government in different policy areas, such as education, public finance, social policies, housing, transportation, environmental protection, cultural conservation and political reform. In every Legislative election since 1992, we nominated candidates and successfully get elected every time. Using the Assembly as a platform, we advance our work in different areas and monitor the government. We also support the important work of alternative media to disseminate important information to the public in the conservative media environment. Public, civil education about democratic value and opposition knowledge is also important part of our work. Our operating fund came from 20% of the salary of our lawmakers, annual membership fee (MOP$200) and small donation from supporters and citizens. Using these fund and support, the New Macau Association organized a lot of the social movement, social actions and policies advocacy and support our training work, personnel, printing materials and other expenses. Politics is a long war. One cannot win without resources. Each dime of your donation is our only way to move forward and monitor the government. If you value our existence, please join our crowdfunding project!
In the ‘Hong Kong Faces' series, Ducky made the disappeared Hong Kong identity reappear. Objects such as Ericsson model 337, pay phones at the MTR station, and Chips sneakers, juxtaposing with the poses of subjects in different spaces, arouse viewer’s love-hate emotions towards Hong Kong in the pre-1997 era. The works inspire those once-embraced but now long-forgotten thoughts in us. Ducky refers it as ‘impermanence’. When he navigated among people to create his work, he walked into many births and cessations, searching for the sparks of souls in between. Through his work, the identity of Hong Kong people in the 1990s (particularly the grassroots) that are otherwise difficult to sort out, is seen.
