River of Light

Central, Hong Kong, 10 Jun 2021

The acclaimed ‘Skynet’ art series by world renowned artist Patrick Shearn. He took inspiration from Victoria Harbour to create the mid-air kinetic sculpture River of Light. Composed of over 45,000 colourful streamers, the 700-square-metre sculpture flutters above the harbour of Hong Kong day and night. With a light-reflecting band running through it, this symbolic river scintillates timelessly, connecting the past, present and future of our city with the life, growth and possibility of water.

Amazing creation. It must be wonderful to see this in person- so bright and uplifting. I can imagine the fluttering might also make an interesting, perhaps water-like sound? This is wonderful to see.

This must be amazing to see, KK! With the scale of it, and the light shining through those rainbow colours, it must be a wonderful and inspirational sight.
