Colorful art exhibition livens up Hong Kong’s harbourfront

More than 45,000 colourful streamers flutter over Central as part of a two-week exhibition by local and international designers along the harbourfront. Seven installations are placed along the walking path from the Causeway Bay typhoon shelter to Central for the “transFORM” exhibition curated by Design District Hong Kong. Artists were inspired by Chinese garden design and the Tai Hang traditional fire dragon dance originally created to ward off plague, according to the exhibition website. Five of the installations are open with two still under construction.

Napp Studio, a local creative design team, redesigned five local folk games with a twist. Rules are provided for the games on the pavement.



In this game, players move through the board using “rock, paper, scissors” to determine the number of steps. The person who gets to the centre first wins.

Jason Wu, an amateur photographer, says when the colourful streamers dance in the wind, it reminds him of flowing water.
