With its distinctive urban landscape and rich cultural legacies, Hong Kong has always been a great source of creative inspirations for video games.  Hong Kong is one of the most frequently represented locations, alongside with other global cities such as New York City and Tokyo, in video games.  As both a physical place and a cultural icon, Hong Kong commands and occupies a unique position in the video game imaginary. 

 

Against this cultural context and in recognizing video game's artistic potentials and its role in contemporary art, the current exhibition PLAY.GROUND II will feature a collection of video game and game-inspired artworks by five Hong Kong-based media artists in order to provide a showcase as well as a creative overview of the distinctive state of Hong Kong video game art and its recent development.
