CONNECTING KOWLOON EAST

No matter if you are a smoker seeking a moment of solitude; a mover pushing a cart load of goods to avoid traffic; or simply a motorcyclist setting yourself free from a ton of steel. once you enter an alley way, you know you are part of a hidden community that shares the opportunity to enjoy this unique spatial freedom. The community understands its logic and respects its manner. The alleys welcome all in the sunny days, yet invisible and scary at night. Only the brave and the VIPs are willing to enter in this darkness. It is visibility that can liberate this space under the starless sky, hence lighting in an art form would be suitable for the situation in the alleyways.The concept is to introduce an industrial form of lighting art that can be seen as motifs along the alley walls, to reflect the mood of the days from 50s to 80s, via the means of local slangs of the time. By combining them with humorous graphics, the neon signs should act as a reminder of the culture we belong to.

 

那吞雲吐霧似的; 

那推進木頭車的; 

那停泊在牆側的; 

都是在後巷裡尋找著一種獨特的空間自由的族羣。

族羣內無名似的使用者深明箇中意,縱橫處處通。    

 

沒有互相問好,

卻是心中有數。  

陽光下的親和感,

並不能延伸至黑夜巷尾。      

闇,

是後巷族的敵人。

 

霓虹燈是上世紀工業時代的光環; 

五彩幻影可能是照耀暗角的神器。 

掛在嘴脣邊的傳統, 

可能應工場職人口中的通俗語境內重塑。
