With Christmas fast approaching, Hong Kong will become brighter than ever as festive lights decorate neighborhood trees and light up buildings. Architect Chan Lai Kiu has curated nine art pieces by a dozen local artists to promote a more sustainable and eco-friendly holiday season. Labeled "upcycled" art, the pieces are made from recycled materials including tablecloths, bottle caps and cardboard scraps as well as various lighting instruments and fixtures. A Christmas tree-shaped light installation with an accessible interior has been installed in the atrium of Nina Mall, and guided tours are available for those interested to learn more about the underlying thematic concept of each piece.
