Since the making of "building hong kong redwhiteblue" in 2001, with the aim of promoting positive Hong Kong spirit through the making use of "redwhiteblue" polyethylene material as creative medium, my goal was to be everywhere like the "Kowloon King" but
with a licence, not like our King who did it illegally.
The pair of posters convey the messages "to reflect" (blue side) and "to dream" (red side) my view of Hong Kong now, in which the words are re-ordered from the eight panels of original calligraphy I personally received from the "Kowloon King" years ago. The messages are about eating and shopping, the stock market and real estate, chasing after money, and, of course, there are also political and social issues, the dreams and hopes of Hong Kong. My wish is that this positive vision for Hong Kong is realized and not found to be an illusion.
