Den-city is inspired from the density of Hong Kong city fabric. While this is the beauty of Hong Kong as a metropolis, this also greatly affect the privacy and living condition of its people.
Den-city is an installation which uses infinite reflections of the light, shadow to recreate the urban fabric of Hong Kong within a confined space. Through the journey of moving between the den-city, one is given an alternative perspective to appreciate the beauty of Hong Kong as an outsider as well as to re-think the conditions of living in this world-famous metropolis.
The pattern changes through the development of Hong Kong, including 5 stages: Squatter Hut, Tong Lau, Public Housing, Private Housing and Commercial Building.
