NEONSIGNS.HK

Online exhibition and documentary on the craft and decline of the neon sign industry in Hong Kong. As well as an online map which locates where any remaining signs would exist, there is a fascinating documentary short featuring craftsmen whose livelihood have been affected by the introduction of the LED light:

NEONSIGNS.HK is an interactive, online exhibition dedicated to exploring, mapping and documenting Hong Kong’s neon signs. The seventh in the Mobile M+ exhibition series, NEONSIGNS.HK invites the public to post images and stories of their favourite neon signs to its Neon Map, and to rediscover these compelling features of the city’s streetscapes from the perspectives of design and urbanism, visual art, cinema, literature and popular culture. 

From 21 March to 30 June, 2014, the NEONSIGNS.HK website will be actively updated with new content, ranging from essays and slideshows to videos, specially-commissioned projects and news about offline tours, talks and workshops. M+ has begun acquiring, for its permanent collection, notable Hong Kong neon signs that are otherwise at risk of being lost. As such, the aim of NEONSIGNS.HK is to enhance the understanding of these fast-disappearing and under-researched fixtures of the city’s urban landscape, while eliciting the public’s help in identifying and contributing knowledge about the neon signs that remain.

People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow.

For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.

Kurt Cobain's legacy lives on

An expert in our treatment of death and mourning, Dr Margaret Gibson, senior lecturer in the school of humanities at Griffith University and author of Objects of the Dead, believes someone such as Cobain ”embodies a relic of a preserved youth” for those who went on, who grew older while he didn’t. Inevitably that relic, someone ”who was a figure in the construction of your own memory of youth”, becomes idealised.

”The fact that you are no longer leading a parallel life with that person, that kind of disjuncture between who you are now, growing older, in middle age, and this person who is part of your life who is somewhere in your history that you cannot recover, reminds us of what we can’t get back,” Dr Gibson says. 

”When people die young it’s a double reminder that not only do they not come back but youth never really comes back. And those two things get fused together, death and youth.”
