The winners of a competition organised by Henderson Land Group (“Henderson Land” or “the Group”) called “Realising Your Imagination Creative Competition” have now been announced and their work will be on display for public viewing from June 3 – 14.

The competition was designed to encourage communal imagination through creating multimedia artworks with inspiration from the Group’s contributions to the city.

A total of 17 awards were revealed at the award ceremony held on 31 May, with the participation of professionals from the architectural, design, art, and academic fields.

“The Henderson Land Realising Your Imagination Interactive Exhibition”, a free public interactive exhibition at H Queen’s will showcase the award-winning works and combine the experience of viewing art and collecting NFT souvenirs for the first time.

Through the fusion of digital art, a 270° immersive experience, Augmented Reality technology, and personalised NFT souvenirs, the 12-day art exhibition features artworks that depict future communities, cityscapes and lifestyles.

One part of the exhibition called “Immersive Space” offers a 270° immersive experience by taking visitors on a visual journey of the Group’s contributions to the city, such as the developed International Financial Centre complex and ArtLane.

At the “Web 3.0 Creative Space”, visitors will get a chance to create unique NFT souvenirs based on photos or videos of their AR-enabled interactions with winning artworks. The NFT souvenirs will be stored in the visitors’ Henderson Land NFT wallet.

The Champion artwork in the Student category was inspired by the concept of a time capsule, and a group of enthusiastic, dream-pursuing students crafted a story to depict an imaginative future, where their future selves read letters written by themselves in the present, so as to demonstrate how the future of Hong Kong becomes better with urban planning.

The Open Group’s Champion is a digital artist who took inspiration from ArtLane, Henderson Land’s first urban revitalisation project Urban Art in Soho. The awardee uses point cloud, VR and other technologies to conduct a memory exploration experiment for the audience. The artwork combines original music and the sound of waves to express the concept of coexistence between man and nature.

Winners were awarded art trips to Europe and/or cash prizes, together with a memorable and unique NFT e-certificate as a token of encouragement.

The public may utilise the AR filter at the exhibition and share their preferred future scenarios with the hashtag #RealisingYourImagination and tag @hendersonlandhk on their personal Instagram accounts. Participants will get a chance to receive a souvenir, while five participants with the most inspirational entries will each be rewarded with Matcha Latte Japan Premium Set from an F&B tenant at H Queen’s.
