Why
The "Fly Head" trains have served the Hong Kong public for four decades between Kowloon and Lo Wu. As a celebration of its importance to Hong Kong, we were commissioned to design an interactive and educational art installation – The Portal of Speed.

Through changes in colour and density, we created a manifestation in form of 3 different velocities of the "Fly-Head" train - at full speed, slowing down upon arrival, and stationary at each of its destinations - to create both a sense of nostalgia, as well as optimism for the future.
