Hong Kong, a city officially narratived with words “global”, has urban life and spectacle much more than the photos of Central can convey. Inspired by concepts of flâneurie and dérive, based on three years’ experience of stroll and street photgraphy, I designed this imagi- nary “installation”, encouraging people to drop their daily life, take a flâneurie and appreciate so many kinds of encounters hidden inside this city. The design is in form of a bridge passing through the gaps between buildings, carrying its impossible scale and comput- er-generated structures. It starts from Central, intend- ing to brutally tear up the increasingly predictable and monotonous experience of everyday life in advanced capitalism, and lead people towards the streets of non-places, the relaxing natural and finally Victoria Peak, where a spectacular view of the city and the open sea is waiting quietly.
