Youth Square ‘Into the Lights’ brings an art-tech mash-up to inspire wonder

HONG KONG, Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Youth Square has been supporting youth to explore every possibility of their potential, and enrich their experience by providing diversified innovations. Recently, Youth Square has set up ‘Into the Lights’ on its 6th floor as a ‘check-in’ hotspot by bringing in an innovative projection. Surrounded by different visuals and soft music in the aisle, the awe-inspiring digital installation allows visitors to unleash their creativity and become a vital part of the art! The launch ceremony of ‘Into the Lights’ has been broadcasted live via Youth Square Instagram today (27 October). During the launch ceremony, we have invited Ms Christy Poinsettia Ma, a young dancer from City Contemporary Dance Company to give a fantastic dance performance in different scenes. She also improvised the result of the poll ‘The Most Desirable Dance Scene’ chosen by netizens earlier in the interplay of lights and shadows to kick off ‘Into the Lights’.

The two major themes of ‘Into the Lights’ are “Four Seasons” and “Blink”. “Four Seasons” displays a celebration of seasonal flowers with designated music and effects to allow visitors immerse themselves in the fleeting beauty of the seasons; and “Blink” demonstrates a journey across the cosmos in which visitors are able to immerse in the splendour of star clusters.

Today, while innovative technology is breaking down the past traditional boundaries and injecting new possibilities into our lives, Youth Square has also made continuous efforts to integrate technology into venues. Combining arts and technology, ‘Into the Lights’ in Youth Square marks a breakthrough to go beyond the traditional arts by creating an innovative arts experience. We hope that this digital interactive arts space can give youth the chance to experience arts, enjoy arts and take pleasures in it. Youth Square ‘Into the Lights’ is now permanently stationed on the 6th floor of Youth Square, all are welcome to come and immerse yourselves into the lights and shadows!
