Over at Sha Tin Park, the theme will be creatures of the underwater world such as clownfish, dolphins, turtles and jellyfish.

At Tin Shui Wai Park, the centerpiece will be a 5m-high phoenix lantern decoration. There will be other lantern displays featuring rabbits, ladybugs, meerkats and robots.

The Cultural Center’s energy-efficient dazzling light installation which can be viewed for a longer time is a creation by local local artist Dylan Kwok.


The installation features six giant inflatable rabbit phubbers playing with their tablets, and uses projection, reflection and light absorption and emission techniques to bring out special lighting effects.

The show is meant to prod the viewers to reflect on the impact of technology on people’s daily lives.
