Above Hong Kong


A city is a place of relativity. Space, architecture, and history are of relativity in cities. Unlike other cities around the world, Hong Kong has gone through incredibly rapid modernisation, and achieved aggressive growth. Even now, redevelopment and constructions are still going on in various parts of the city, under the logic of design and economic efficacy. 

Google earth and google map are pouring out genetic maps of cities, which are even more limitless than the structures of genomes. In the era when everything is scanned as such, the world is getting smaller and compressed into data.

This series of works show the high angle of Hong Kong which captured by drone in the air, it give a new perspective of composition with its modern architecture and historic buildings;its infrastructure of roads and bridges; and its rooftops used for every possible purpose.
