距離2047年7月1日凌晨0:00,剩下
Counting down to 0:00, 1st July 2047

#2047hk


由17/5/2016晚上開始,至22/6/2016,我們每晚在香港最高的大廈(環球貿易廣場)外牆上,顯示距離2047年7月1日零時零分,剩下的時間(秒數)。2047年7月1日零時零分,香港在「一國兩制」原則下維持「50年不變」的年期將結束。(「50年不變」的政策,在中華人民共和國於1997年7月1日對香港恢復行使主權後,寫於基本法條文。) 作為出現在ICC外牆的公共媒體藝術,《倒數機》將在上述日期,每晚展出一分鐘。

自2014年雨傘運動結束後,人們對香港民主化沒有寸進的氣餒和憤怒,漸轉化成對這城市在2047年後命運的關注和焦慮。香港公民,特別是年青一代,提出了重要的政治願景:這城市的未來應該由香港人共同決定。

把距離2047年的時間形象化(9億多秒的時間),我們希望進一步呼籲各方關注、討論和介入香港的「2047問題」。同時,我們希望讓全球的朋友理解,香港公民正在尋求命運自主的道路上努力。

We turned the façade of the tallest skyscraper in Hong Kong (the International Commerce Center, 484m tall) into a countdown (in seconds) to 0:00 1st July 2047 - when the 50-year period that Hong Kong is guaranteed to be 'remained unchanged' after it was returned to Chinese sovereignty will come to an end. The Countdown Machine, as a public artwork on the LED façade of the ICC, will appear for one minute every night during the period 17th May 2016 - 22nd June 2016.

Since the Umbrella Movement ended in 2014, the frustration towards a halted democracy in the city has been transformed into concerns about and anxiety towards the fate of Hong Kong in 2047. Citizens of Hong Kong, particularly the younger generation, have advocated that the future of the city should be determined by Hong Kong people.

By visualizing the countdown to 2047 (a previously unseen number just below 1 billion) in a public display, we seek to further highlight the importance of the '2047 issue' and hope that more debates and actions will emerge. We hope to draw the world's attention to the city's ongoing struggle.

17th May 2016 - 22nd May 2016: around 9:37pm
23rd May 2016 - 22nd June 2016: around 8:07pm

如看到那串數字及拍下照片,請藉此跟親友討論香港的「2047問題」。如把照片上載到社交媒體上,可加上#2047hk的hashtag。

倒數機是「嵌」在另一參展藝術作品中的創作。因為技術問題,在ICC外牆上的數字不夠準確,最準確的數字將顯示在這作品的網頁上,該網頁在往後將繼續存在。

You are invited to send photos to friends and relatives to initiate discussions on Hong Kong’s ‘2047 question’. If you upload the photo to social medias, you may add the hashtag #2047hk .

The Countdown Machine is ‘embedded’ in another artwork created for an art exhibition. Due to technical reasons, the number shown on the façade is not the most accurate one. Please visit the Countdown Machine’s website for the most accurate numbers – the website will remain online in the future.
