Landscapes of Hong Kong – Electricity Towers


Wouter van Buuren explored the landscapes of Hong Kong Island by climbing into high voltage transmission towers and photographing from their summits. The resulting works are patterns of photographs in either circular or rectangular compositions. The circular compositions are made of photographs shot from one transmission tower. The rectangular compositions combine photographs shot from a sequence of consecutive towers which were all climbed in one day.

In both the circular and rectangular compositions the combined images form coherent space-time structures. These space-time structures are topologies representing the visual perception of the artist. The circular images represent a momentary perception of the universe. The rectangular images show a path in space-time representing a field of vision over a time-interval of a day.
