“Harbour Wave 2.0” is an immersive art and lighting installation that floats between the breakwater of the East Coast Park Precinct and the sky above. The undulating form and changing gradient of vibrant colours captured from the day and night lights of the Hong Kong skyline appear as if in motion and harmony with the waves of the harbour, presenting a new iconic landmark at the heart of the city. When the sun sets in the distance, and the harbour is lit up by the lights of the architecture, the installation comes to life with an everchanging lighting experience that allows visitors to feel completely immersed in a surreal wave of motion and colour.

Brought to you by local architectural studio - ARTA Architects, the 200 square metre floating canopy is composed of over 15,000 recycled plastic (rPET) rope of different colours to demonstrate that beautiful art can be made from recycled plastic. As the deposed plastic are mostly sent to landfills, or end up in the harbour, we hope that “The Harbour Wave 2.0” can raise awareness and educate the public on the damage of plastic waste to the environment. Thus, encouraging the public to lead a more sustainable lifestyle and preserving the beautiful waterfront of Victoria Harbour.

“Harbour Wave 2.0” preserved the original steel structure from “Harbour Wave”, extending the life of plastic bottle caps from several days to more than half year and using the recycled plastic rope to replace the plastic bottle caps. “Harbour Wave 2.0” continues the sustainable quest of ARTA Architects from recycle, reuse to repurpose and repurpose.
