A multimedia interactive art exhibition showing 25 pieces of art inspired by the Basic Law is now on show at The Westwood in Western District.


These artworks, including illustrations, installations, typographic design, sculptures and motion graphics, commemorate the 25th anniversary of the promulgation of the Basic Law.


Speaking at the exhibition’s opening ceremony today, Chief Secretary Carrie Lam said exhibition visitors will be offered a fresh perspective to get to know the Basic Law, an important document that concerns all our daily lives.


“Such an understanding is crucial to giving the Basic Law its full play to maintain Hong Kong's unique strengths.”


One of the larger exhibits is a sculpture entitled "Book of Life". With Basic Law inscriptions on two open pages, the book forms the foundation of two trees with branches showing the words "Rights" and "Freedoms". This shows that under the Basic Law, Hong Kong's rights and freedoms are protected and can be further developed.


Another exhibit allows visitors to "Discover the Basic Law" by using a special viewing glass to reveal hidden content on "blank" video screens.
