重現港式數碼龐克| REIMAGINING HONG KONG CYBERPUNK

深水埗區一直都是香港時裝及設計的基地,令人目不暇給的布料及配件素材,不勝枚舉的創意小店,加以獨特的社區生態,其活力和魅力毋庸置疑。不僅如此,深水埗之豐富、五光十色的街頭元素更使得該區成為不少數碼龐克 (cyberpunk) 電影的背景靈感。「數碼龐克號」連同本地和國際創意伙伴,共同塑造創意時尚體驗,譲觀眾一窺深水埗與數碼龐克結合的獨特面貌與文化。

Sham Shui Po has always been the place for local fashion and design enthusiasts for its uniqueness and abundance in choices of fabrics and accessories. It also nurtures numerous local creatives and businesses, shaping the area into a new hub of fashion and design. With its vividness and specialty, Sham Shui Po is frequently seen as part of the futuristic aesthetics in cyberpunk films. “Heart of Cyberpunk” collaborates with local and international creative partners to turn the area into a “design gallery”, showcasing a brand-new blueprint of Sham Shui Po that is set out to impress.

屆時,深水埗將「transFORM蛻變」成今年香港的打卡重地,因為「數碼龐克號」創意時尚體驗作為是次主打活動,選址通州街臨時街市,精心佈置出仿真度極高的電影場景裝置,聯同10間周邊特色店舖締造街頭設計廊,將整個深水埗區塑造成超感官的迷你科幻城市,一步步帶領參加者進入一個科幻且超現實的電影場景中。為公眾及遊人呈現深水埗未來城市的美學形態,為公眾及遊人呈現深水埗未來城市的美學形態。連串相關主題的精彩時尚活動如數碼龐克市集、迷你藝術店、展覽、講座、導賞團,及其他公眾活動,重新發現不一樣的地道深水埗。

The Sham Shui Po area will be hosting a pop up open-air design district gallery, in hopes of showcasing the local community and visitors the distinct charm of Hong Kong. The entire Tung Chau Street Temporary Market will be transformed into a surreal sci-fi film set, as well as involving 10 local businesses where they will be housing fantastical installations, allowing the participants to fully immerse themselves in a Cyberpunk world, as soon as they enter into the area. Visitors can also discover the area through the cybermarket, design exhibits in shops, exhibition, talks, guided tours and public engagement programmes.

位於通州街臨時街市的「數碼龐克號」,外觀猶如一艘從天而降的太空飛船總部,完美呈現出數碼龐克文化以資訊科技為骨幹的特點。入場人士穿過佈置成時光隧道的入口後,即可看到未來居民在數碼都市內的房間、形形式式的暗黑實驗室、模擬人體標本的貯藏管,以及由本地設計師打造的數碼龐克電影角色和時裝展覽,氛圍與科幻電影呼應;而於數碼龐克電影中常見的密集式霓虹光管則可於近出口的數碼龐克市集找到,整個「數碼龐克號」創意時尚體驗的每一處幾乎都可作時下流行的打卡熱點。而且本地創意單位及大師如街招、梁仲文導演、黃玉郎 (文化傳信)、漫畫家江記等的作品穿梭貫穿於整個場景內,令人目不暇給。

Located at Tung Chau Street Temporary Market, the Heart of Cyberpunk mimics a spaceship headquarters that just landed in the middle of the city, perfectly illustrating the essence of Cyberpunk. Participants will enter through an abstract tunnel, transporting them into the bedrooms of where people of the future reside. The participants will walk into a laboratory where they will come face-to-face with sci-fi characters clothed in the designer’s outfits. Walking through to the final fleet, participants will be led to the Cybermarket that is filled with neon lights, chatter and electronics, completing their Heart of Cyberpunk journey. Throughout the space, local artists will be featured, along with experts in their rights, including StreetSign HK, Director Leung Chung Man (梁仲文導演), cultural icon, Tony Wong (黃玉郎) and Comic artist Kong Kee (江記).  Every corner of Heart of Cyberpunk is an Instagram-worthy shot that participants will not want to miss.

深水埗區發展已久,除卻華人族群外,更是少數族裔共融的區域。為體現這種中外文化交融的社區特色,項目特別聯同本地及國際業界精英共同打造這個由時裝出發、延展至各種設計媒體及展現形式的體驗,包括:曾參與《攻殼機動隊》、《變形金剛4:絕跡重生》場景及道具製作的蔡志熙(Calvin Tsoi)傾力打造「數碼龐克號」內的科幻場景,並將場景設計師 Lydia Chan 的設計化成氣勢磅礴的藝術裝置,電影感十足之餘,更添加一份貼近本地文化氣息的濃厚情懷,令入場人士於通州街臨時街市和周邊小店都能投入到數碼龐克國度中;來自澳洲的多媒體藝術家Missy則出任演出指導,隔空帶領模特兒、舞者和表演者透過演出為活動添加彷如擁有高端人工智能晶片一樣的互動體驗。

Because Sham Shui Po has so much diversity, besides Chinese descent in Sham Shui Po, there are also residents who are of different cultural backgrounds. To celebrate the diversity, the Heart of Cyberpunk has decided to involve both local talents and global experts to curate this year’s event. Stemming from fashion design as the base of the event, to other design disciplines, including installation and set designer, Calvin Tsoi, who also took part in creating the sets for “Ghost in the Shell”, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and other international films. Working together to design the incredible Cyberpunk set, Lydia Chan helps transform Tung Chau Street Temporary Market into a surreal film set-like space, allowing participants to fully immerse themselves into the setting. Missy from Australia, as the show director for the fashion experience, will also be directing and choreographing the performance with the models and dancers to put on a spectacular show, bringing participants a spectacle that is years ahead of its time.

此外,項目更邀來曾與漫威、迪士尼、DC漫畫、20世紀影業等影視公司合作的著名插畫師Chris Skinner設計海報、澳洲著名導演Tristan Jalleh為大會攝影及製作宣傳影片,為「數碼龐克號」打響頭炮;由非牟利藝術團體HKwalls牽頭,由四組本地及海外牆畫高手繪製的四幅大型戶外壁畫亦將成為香港街頭藝術新景點。

With an impressive portfolio of working with DC Comics, Disney, Marvel and other major film corporations, the Heart of Cyberpunk invited Chris Skinner to design the event visual. Tristan Jalleh from Australia was also invited to create the promo video, allowing viewers to engross themselves even before attending the event. As participants attend the event, they will encounter stunning walls, created by HKWALLS, they worked with four groups of International and local artists to design the impressive permanent murals.

時裝品牌「INJURY」創辦人兼是次創意時尚活動策展及創作總監梁慧德指出:「『數碼龐克號』這個項目可謂集各家之大成,透過科技突破時空與地域限制,進行構思、研討、會議,繼而『transFORM蛻變』出這個活動實體,整個過程本身亦展現出數碼龐克精神,結果令人期待。」

Creative Visionary and founder of fashion label INJURY as the fashion event’s curator and creative director of Heart of Cyberpunk, Eugene Leung says, “I can truly say that our team embarked on something new, pushing ourselves immensely, working together, we planned this event in a total ‘Cyberpunk’ fashion. As our collaborators are all around the globe, we utilised the technology available to us, we held meetings virtually, and planned the whole event online. I’m confident to say that the outcome of this event is going to be truly astounding.”
