Tower of Blah

Related Staff : Nasrine Seraji, Roberto Requejo, Lim Jae Hyun


The Tower of Blah attempts to reveal (or expose) through infographics, rather than design, the particulars of Hong Kong and its relationship to Towers. Its status as the city with most towers requires close inspection, for this condition need not mean richest, densest or most livable. How then, does Hong Kong compare to other territories, other incomes, and other areas? Are towers, as evident in this exhibition, to be perceived as opportunities to showcase prowess (of all sorts), or should they be seen as telling symptoms of the state of the economies, territories and societies that harbour them?

Blah 塔》試圖通過信息圖形,而非設計去揭示香港的特質及與塔樓建築的關係。香港作為一個擁有最多摩天大廈的城市需要我們仔細檢閲,因為這種情況不一定意味著最富裕、最密集或最宜居。那香港與其他地區、收入和領域相比會如何呢?在這次展覽中,塔樓應被視為展示各種實力的機會,還是應被用作能夠呈現地方經濟、領土和社會狀況的分析工具?
