Remember Hong Kong: Relive The Sights And Smells Of Old Hong Kong

According to photographer Andy Yeung: “I drew inspiration from the anime Ghost in the shell (1995), in which Hong Kong was a model in terms of street scenes and general atmosphere. In the movie, Kai Tak Airport was in full operation. But in reality, it it’s no longer existed – it was shut down in 1998. Hong Kong is a fast-changing city. The old is being replaced by the new. So I intend to capture the old Hong Kong before it’s gone forever. I hope I can get people to take notice of the beauty of old Hong Kong and try to preserve the old by creating the images from my perspective.” Continue »

With dizzying wall graphics reminiscent of warped funhouse mirrors, artist Peter Kogler transforms ordinary galleries, transit centers, and lobbies into near hallucinatory experiences. For over 30 years, the Austrian artist has worked at the intersection of architecture and new media to construct both immersive environments and sculptural elements that seems to redefine physical spaces.
