Asia's World City
mixed-media, 12 vinyl banners in public space, 290 x 68 cm each, 2008

In February 2008, over 70 people responded by email to my call for making wishes for the "Asia’s World City", branding of Hong Kong made by the government since 2003. A wish list was compiled, in which twelve were chosen as "unaccomplished" wishes to appear on the Asia’s World City banners along Hollywood Road in Central. Make your wish and comment at http://www.studiobbq.blogspot.com/

A documentation and extension of the project was exhibited in the Goethe Institute Hongkong and ifa galleries in Stuttgart and Berlin in 2009.
