Project Description


Acrylic glass

Wall mounted installation

Hong Kong’s cityscape has many repetitive patterns comprised out of arrays of housing blocks, factory or office buildings. The towers of architectural blocks are stacked along the mountain lines of Hong Kong’s geography forming agglomerations of recurrent shapes and patterns. City Patterns document Hong Kong’s unique and fascinating urban structures into simplified yet aesthetic architectural motifs.

They are cut from neon-coloured acrylic glass. The transparency of the material produces projections of the patterns created by natural light or spot light that overlap with the cut out patterns. Both patterns overlap and densify the architecture – mesmerizing the viewer about which of the patterns is more real – the tangible or the intangible City Pattern?
