Passing Through, an immersive 360-degree video work, celebrates Leonard Cohen’s singular voice, his music, his charismatic persona and his inimitable stage presence. Drawing on a vast archive of audiovisual material, George Fok pays tribute to Leonard Cohen’s monumental, five-decade-long career as a singer/songwriter and performer. This composite portrait of the artist recalls and reconstructs various pivotal stages in Cohen’s career—from his early years in bohemian, 1960s Montréal to his recognition as a heavyweight global cultural icon later in life. Visitors experience an extraordinary time-travel journey through a collage of collective memories, musical moments and emotions that have enchanted generations of fans around the world.
