Local freelance photographer Chan Hin Io renders a unique view of the city through drone photography. These aerial shots are intentionally composed to capture orthographic projections, which are two-dimensional images of three-dimensional objects. In doing so, the visual compositions offer a new take on an otherwise familiar urban setting.

Until Feb 8 (closed Tuesdays), noon-8pm; free. Taipa Village Art Space.
