Aside from bareknuckle action and breakneck stunts, martial arts and wuxia films are packed with wisdom and life lessons. Artist Jason Phu has reclaimed these wise sayings and remixed them into a moving image philosophy for surviving contemporary life. Divided into chapters featuring insights and meditations from different movies, TV shows and videogames, Analects of Kung Phu: Book 1, The 69 Dialogues between the Lamp and the Shadow offers a guide to ourselves and society taught by action stars and movie heroes.

This list corresponds to the different channels in the work, with the main middle screen represented on the left and the two secondary screens, titled ‘Horse’ and ‘Bird’ to the right.
