Hong Kong has more than once overcome plagues. Over a century ago, people who lived in Tai Hang performed the ‘fire dragon dance’ to drive away a plague. The rite later evolved into a world-known festive event and was named and rhythm. The works let visitors rest and relax, awaken their senses to the beauty and versatility of the public space along Victoria Harbour, and engage them in a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage. Created by local and overseas creatives and incorporated with ingenious design elements, the 7 sets of ‘transFORM’ design installations are placed in different corners along the harbourfront as if the fire dragon is embracing Victoria Harbour when viewed from above, blessing Hong Kong during the ongoing pandemic.
With the theme ‘SSP_People’, #ddHK reimagines Sham Shui Po as the living room for the city through the design installations in 4 public spaces and 10 designer furniture co-created with local shops. We dug deep into what's happening in the neighbourhood and turned the interesting elements into a multidimensional visual journey. The district’s shop cats will become the ambassadors of this urban living room to extend the community’s friendliness and hospitality.
