Sometimes a picture can tell a different story when viewed from another angle. This is the second artwork from the "NEON H—ART: Part II" series I did in Hong Kong in March 2018.
This image was taken from the rooftop of a skyscraper in downtown Hong Kong. The red lights in the picture are an advertising screen. When I look at the landscapes of Hong Kong, I always imagine an alternative reality, where skyscrapers hang from the sky, where instead of the sky we see water, and the roads resemble the arteries of a living organism. This's another futuristic perspective on Hong Kong.
Artist's statement about the collection:
It's interesting to observe the way how Urban Exploration questions reality, rethinks city space through architecture, and deconstruction of color in photography. Every place captured by an artist becomes a particular geolocation, which is a means of communication with the audience. The place comes alive and becomes a subject of discussion on the internet or anywhere, it’s a way to navigate the city. Such places become a destination for urban explorers, and raise public awareness of themselves despite the fact that sometimes images can be captured illegal.
