Hong Kong's Neon Signs

"Mobile M+: NEONSIGNS.HK" is an online exhibition that documents the richness of Hong Kong’s neon landscape, both past and present. The public is invited to upload images which then appear on an interactive map. So far, over 1,811 images have been received.

The project is part of M+, the new museum for visual culture being built in Hong Kong, set to open in 2017. M+ Curator of Design and Architecture, Aric Chen, was just one of the many fascinating presenters at Lingua Franca, this year’s conference produced by SVA D-Crit, the graduate program in design criticism.

  1. Those are really beautiful neon signs! Very lovely to look at. I must remember to take a quick glance at them whenever I go to HK. Thank you for sharing the photos. They are wonderful works of art and I hope more people get to appreciate them more. :)
