Growing up in the 90’s I feel inlove with cyberpunk. I loved the idea of a dystopian Neo Future. Everything from cyber enhancements to the architecture.
Recently for work I was given the opportunity to travel to Hong Kong.
It was like living my cyberpunk dreams.
A diverse city
Hong kong’s architecture is a mix of century old buildings with new tech hap-hazardly slapped on the side. Cables running everywhere Neon / LED lights on the whole sides of buidlings. It took me right back to watching my VHS copy of blade runner. a strange mix of poverty and affluence in one city. All United under vibrant lights.
A diverse people
My time in hongkong was short lived. But out of the people i met there most spoke multiple languages and 90% spoke english.
Walking the streets my eyes were drawn to the amazing colours forcing my head up to the skys.
.Hong Kong had heavy japanese car culture influence.
