“Sweet Sorrow” Exhibit Explores the Neon Landscape of Hong Kong


Hong Kong based artist Wing Shya currently has a cyberpunk influenced exhibit on display at the Blue Lotus Gallery in Chai Wan. The massive undertaking involved nearly 100 designers and artists over a two year period and cost more than HK $3million to produce. It explores the neon landscapes of his home city and what it means to live in the technology dominated digital age.  From Wing Shya:

Most of the population is reliant on technology, and since the younger ones are born to the age of technology, they are better equipped, more tech-savvy,” he says. “It’s inevitable that our world is completely revolutionised by technology. But it would be nice to learn to be self-aware so that we don’t get spiritually devoured by technology.”
