Marcus Wendt’s Ultraviolet Break Of Day In The Neon-hued Streets Of Hong Kong And Shenzhen

Marcus Wendt is the creative director at FIELD.io, a London based creative studio working with generative design and new technologies in art, design and branding. While on a recent trip to China, Marcus took a mesmerizing series of photos titled “Ultraviolet Break Of Day”.
Marcus Wendt: “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 colors shifting and angles unbending. In the midst of the night a new day begins … Due to a heavy dose of jet lag induced insomnia, I’ve started to explore the Kowloon area of Hong Kong as well as Shenzhen’s Huaqiangbei “The World’s Greatest Electronics Market” late at night on a recent trip to China. I realized that the unfamiliar place, time of day, the car park rooftop I found accidentally and misusing Light room 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 and films like Syndicate or Blade Runner, which led to developing the aesthetic for this series”.
