Nam Wah Neon Lights | "Neon Memory" Documentary Film Project
Neon signs, which represent the collective memory of past glory in HK, also symbolise the fading glow of value and conscience nowadays. In 2014, M+ Museum in HK curated a series of public talk and online exhibition Neon Signs.HK. At the same time, senior-year students at Motion Media Design (MOME) Department in SCAD HK also accomplished their senior-year project "Neon Memory" under the instruction of prof. Alvin Chen - to document the fading technique of handcrafting neon signage.
霓虹，標誌著香港人集體記憶中過往的璀璨，也象徵著舊日價值與意識的黯淡。2014年，香港 M+ Museum 策劃了一系列名為“Neon Signs”的公共論壇與在線展覽，討論並紀錄霓虹招牌在香港的存廢。與此同時，我與SCAD HK Motion Media Design 大學部的高年級同學們，亦完成了一部名為 "Neon Memory" 的紀錄片，用以紀錄逝去之中的技藝與影像。
Jerry Chen, the 2014 MOME alumni, follows the film production of "Neon Memory" and expands the idea of nostalgia towards fading glow of neon signs. He creates the pre-visualisation of neon signs projection mapping at the façade along the Victoria Harbour.
2014年於 SCAD HK Motion Media Design 畢業的學生Jerry Chen（現任yU+Co.[Lab]全職設計師），在畢業製作的第二階段，跟進『霓虹記憶』紀錄片內容，將香港懷舊霓虹招牌轉化為三維動畫，並使用投影貼圖（Projection Mapping）概念，合成在香港維多利亞港口的建築上，完成預視化（Pre-visualization）設計。

Microwave New Media Festival | Moving Image Packaging
"Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2014 returns to our original settlements after exploring the possibilities for future habitats, mirroring life from the aspect of technology and science with a starting point from architecture, to contemplate on urban ecology. Video works Algorithmic Architecture and A Very Good City offer a key to the audience; the scenes of distorted streets and buildings in the former work suggests the dominating huge amount of data in people’s life when algorithm is right in trend, whereas in the latter one, the streets and space in our city captured by the camera play an distorted rhythm. What does it imply? And what does it attach to?" - Microwave New Media Festival 2014
Microwave New Media Festival | Living Architecture | 2014 | http://www.microwavefest.net/festival2014/
"Microwave Festival began in 1996 as an annual video art festival of the local video art institution Videotage. But as technology progressed and became more accessible, video art slowly evolved to involve other media; thus Microwave began to embrace the wider range of new media art. As the first and only art festival in Hong Kong dedicated to new media art, Microwave has steadily grown into a well-established festival that brings cutting-edge works to provoke thought in the technological hub that Hong Kong is every year.In its 10th anniversary, Microwave Festival celebrated by becoming an independent organisation, complete with a rebranding by design partner Milkxhake and a strengthened curatorial and working team. Now stepping into our 17th year, Microwave will continue our hard work to inspire Hong Kong and the rest of the world with pioneering media artworks selected to suit themes relevant to our society today, while also avidly supporting the exchange and dialogue between artists, professionals and the general public. We envision that through the Microwave network, Hong Kong artists will be introduced to international institutions and curators, working as a platform and gateway for them to develop their art and skills. Apart from the grand annual festival, Microwave also endeavours to nurture a rising local new media arts community, organising various programmes such as educational workshops, seminars, forums and exhibitions." - quote from Microwave New Media Festival 2014

Clockenflap has evolved to become one of the most respected and innovative festivals in the region and each year we see increasing numbers of overseas visitors – after all, Hong Kong does have the best festival venue in the world!Between 2008-2015, the festival has brought a spectacular and amazingly varied array of top-class talent to the city, including New Order, The Libertines, A$AP Rocky, Primal Scream, Chic featuring Nile Rodgers, Franz Ferdinand, The Flaming Lips, Damien Rice, 2manyDJs, De La Soul and hundreds of others, while also showcasing Hong Kong’s best and brightest musical talent. In addition to Clockenflap, Magnetic Asia – the festival’s promoter and organiser – also runs regular music shows throughout the year under the YourMum banner.But while music is at the core of the festival, Clockenflap is about so much more, with stages and areas dedicated to film, visual art, performance art, arts & crafts and family fun. We also have pop-ups from some of the city's hottest bars and restaurants, interactive installations from art & design trailblazers and a cornucopia of curated experiences other curious attractions.In short, it’s a unique assembly of all the things that make life worth living, and a celebration of Hong Kong at its creative, vibrant and ebullient best. And none of it would be possible without the people that make Clockenflap tick: the always-enthusiastic and ever-growing community of Hongkongers that are the beating heart of the festival."
