Hong Kong – Hong Kong celebrates the media arts with Fleeting Light, an interactive public exhibition. Presented by the Hong Kong Arts Development council and organized by the City University of Hong Kong, Fleeting Light features a series of interactive media arts exhibitions and large-scale public art installations.
Jim Campbell is a world-renowned artist known for his innovative use of LED technology. His work Eternal Recurrence paints Hong Kong’s ICC building with figures that swim vertically across the façade. Scattered Light, previously featured at Minnesota’s 2011 Northern Spark Festival, is also on view.
Leung Mee Ping is a Hong Kong-based cross-disciplinary artist. For Fleeting Light she developed an app called Star Pupas that connects people to the cosmos and each other. By holding up your phone to the sky of an enclosed dome, the app identifies and lights up a star for you to name. The more stars that are lit, named and shared creates more light for the community.
Also featured is Samson Young, an audio-visual artist who created a large exhibition featuring sound, installation, prints and objects about the role of Hong Kong’s Stanley Beach during WWII.
