Dim Sum Labs

This project addressed the needs of one of these “lost” segments of Hong Kong society — the creatives, the rebels, the playful and different — by providing a persistent, physically secure space for them, their tools, their projects and their work. As such, they are part of a global non-profit, community-based hackerspace movement. As part of the project, Michelle’s new book “The Field Guide to Hacking” addresses the political, artistic, speculative and scientific aspects of hacking, showcasing the wide spectrum of activities that can flourish within it.
