Wind Shines is a community-based light art project that echoes with the sea breeze of Hong Kong. Composed of nearly 200 wind-powered LED lights contained in glass bottles collected from the local community, the light art installation has been placed inside a pool in Aldrich Bay Park for 2 weeks, which became an extraordinary illumination feature for the park and its neighbourhood. Wind Shines is designed by Dylan Kwok and co-created by people who participated in a community art project “i Light Aldrich Bay” curated by HKPSI: workshops were held for students and residents in the neighbourhood to creatively transform recycled plastics and glass bottles into their own unique art pieces to compose the whole art installation. At the “Light Up Party”, all participants stepped inside the pool and placed their bottles of LED light to complete the installation. Blending the elements of green living and community art, Wind Shines is a collective effort among designers, upcycling specialists, and the Aldrich Bay community.
