    Neon Signage Experience (5/F)

    In the 70s & 80s, the Hong Kong economy was booming and streets were full of neon signages of restaurants and shops, which became the symbols of Hong Kong.  This unique night view of Hong Kong, with its spectacular high rises, is part of the Hong Kong pop culture.  In tribute to this culture, Kwan created neon signages of over 40 valued clients, hotels and design companies, using mirrors for reflection, to create a maze-like installation, with multi- reflected lighting effects.  The experience is one of Nostalgia of Hong Kong.
