Pocket Cinema Hong Kong
Dr. Annie Wan
This project introduces a postdigital strategy for the preservation of local cinema and, at the conjunction of ubiquitous postdigital technologies, arts and the humanities, seeks to foster a new public awareness of the issues at stake in the city’s most representative cultural industry. It resonates with one of the themes of UABB 2015 — ‘how does the city shape our lifestyle’ and ‘how will our lifestyle shape the future city’.
The general public are invited to join the cultural tours specifically for understanding local films and will enjoy the tours in Shamshuipo or in Tai Kok Tsui with an Augmented Reality (AR) technology aided mobile phone app. They will then experience a particular scene of local films by using mobile devices.
Time: 11:30 – 13:30
