The Melon HK event this year was a great success, where it brought together award-winning, as well as emerging science fiction writers from around the world to share, brainstorm and be inspired. You can see the final artwork which was used for the event on this post.
In the first concepts – by introducing the Hong Kong skyline as a city where science fiction is rife – the style would apply where, HK as a city is already a treasure trove in doing so. I became quite fascinated by not only how existing architecture would influence the landscape, but also what other aspects of life would also be affected – what would existing transportation be like in the years to come – in reality, would they even exist? Or would they simply be modernised for the time?
The most iconic landmarks of Hong Kong include the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, Ladies Market, Man Mo Temple, IFC Tower, The BOC Tower, and many others. By incorporating recognisable landmarks or the infamous skyline helps to reinforce the location of the futuristic. I definitely would like to come back to these in the near future and improve on the general look and feel.
