Ultraviolet Break of Day: 2.30AM insomnious and waiting for that guy to fix my fragmented short term memory ๐Ÿ‘ป๐Ÿฆ€ by FIELD.IO

Plunged into a foreign dark I found a new way of seeing, strange and alien. Synthetic light creeps into my eyes, the air thick with colours shifting and angles unbending. In the midst of the night a new day begins.

Process

Due to a heavy dose of jet lag induced insomnia, Iโ€™ve started to explore the Kowloon area of Hong Kong as well as Shenzhenโ€™s Huaqiangbei “The Worldโ€™s Greatest Electronics Marketโ€ late at night on a recent trip to China.

I realised that the unfamiliar place, time of day, the carpark rooftop I found accidentally and misusing Lightroom to create improbable isometric perspectives all help together to create a slightly alien and uncanny atmosphere that reminds me of early 1990’s cyberpunk games + films like Syndicate or Blade Runner, which led to developing the aesthetic for this series.
