Into The Cave

Cheung Man Hong

Photographic Composite


The pixels that make up digital imagery consist of a spectrum of 256 different colors. These colors were projected onto the cave formations. Fused with the cave walls, the colors were then photographed and re-appropriated as pixels, recreating a photograph of the Hong Kong skyline.

Artwork Description

Starting with total darkness, I wanted to fill the caves with a color spectrum never before seen in the site, mixing colors with the textures of the caves’ interior surfaces. By using these colors to recreate an iconic image, the Hong Kong skyline becomes a composite of hundreds of projected lights and hidden surfaces.
