Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour will become the hottest spot for couples to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the International Light Art Display forming the backdrop for fabulous photos until February 24.



Organised by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) and the Tourism Commission, the new light art installations are designed on the theme Love and Romance and showcase 15 works created by local and overseas artists. 

Among the new light art installations are “Bunch of Tulips” from Hungary that greets visitors with a colourful bunch of giant LED flowers, and the interactive “Birds Fly Around With You” from Japan that illuminates more bird sculptures as people step into the magic circle. 

 

Alongside are stunning installations by four local artists including “Geometry of Love” inspired by colourful stained glass church windows and reflecting geometric heartshaped patterns on the ground, and “Hello, Stranger”, which when looked at activates 60 seconds of interactive LED lighting and music.

 

At the Tamar Park in Admiralty, the 50-metre Light Tunnel will be dressed in pink to echo the theme of Love and Romance and display multiple heart shapes to grab the attention of lovers. On top of the new installations, eight popular existing installations, which have been on display from the very beginning of the Festival in November last year, including “Angels of Freedom”, “Talking Heads” and “Tapping”, remain on view.

 

Part of the “Hong Kong Pulse Light Festival” at the Central and Western District Promenade (Central Section), the installations are lit up every evening from 5 to 11.
