Tallest buildings in Hong Kong
This year's Art Basel Hong Kong saw a light show projected onto the International Commerce Center, Hong Kong's tallest building at 1, 588 feet. For "Same Old, Brand New, " artist Cao Fei projected visuals reminiscent of classic arcade games, including Pac-Man and Tetris, complete with chiptune soundtrack. Cao Fei's projection played five times a night over five days.
Fei isn't the first to use the ICC skyscraper as the backdrop for some light-show style art. Last year's Art Basel Hong Kong saw Carsten Nicolai use the facade for a similar show (and of course, turning buildings into video games is by now a storied tradition).
