Light: Density series

Research output: Non-traditional research outputRecorded/rendered creative work

Abstract

The second film from a series called Density, that looks at the consequences of life in extremely dense urban conditions. This movie focus on the impact of artificial light in Hong Kong, the densest place on earth. The light brightness registered in Tsim Sha Tsui from 8.30pm to 11pm, reaches 1,200 times the International Astronomical Union standard. Even at High Island natural Reservoir – where most would expect a natural dark sky – the brightness is still 20 times the standard. Health specialists say light pollution could disrupt the biological clock and affect brain and hormone function. This movie points to the Hong Kong sky wondering if something can be done in the near future…
