Everyone is aware of the harmfulness of air, water and noise pollution, but not light pollution. However, light pollution exists everywhere in Hong Kong, and it also threatens human health and ecosystem like others. Why do people have less conscious of light pollution? Is that because of world-renowned night views? Dynamic light show on the both side of Victoria harbour at 8:00pm every night? LED promotional campaigns designed by advertiser? and so on.
By visualizing the stains of light, i want to show the audience how serious is the light pollution in Hong Kong.
This work "Stains of light" attempt to utilize pinhole camera with long exposure feature to collect excess light for film exposure in some districts of light pollution at night, then I further manipulate images in post production for visualizing the stains of light which show visual representation of light pollution by the stains of varying size and density.
