Hong Kong Night Machine

2019, installation

Hong Kong Night Machine is an installation about light pollution and my personal feeling about it. I record and recompose neon lights and LED advertisements in Monk Kwok, one of the most lit areas at night in Hong Kong. The images are then displayed on a low-resolution LED screen, on which they become abstract. I also record my brainwave during sleepless nights due to the strong light outside the window, then engrave the data onto physical filters that are put in front of the LED screen. The filters further deform the images and merge the data with the light from the screen.

Hong Kong Night Machine is exhibited at Blown Away exhibition in Hall F, Tai Kwun, Central, Hong Kong.
