Touch for Luck, is the inaugural digital commission of M+, Asia’s brand-new museum of contemporary visual culture in Hong Kong which will illuminate the M+ facade.
Touch for Luck is an interactive digital work that reflects our collaborative online presence and the mechanics of social platforms designed to hook you to the screen through a game. Staged on the M+ Facade, the pond of fish connects you to your phone and allows you to join up with others who are touching their own screens simultaneously.
Touch for Luck probes into the absurdity and problems of tour touch-fuelled online lives.
The full view of the pond will be projected on the M+ Facade, a 7000 m2 light-powered canvas facing Victoria Harbour, visible up to 1.5 kilometres away when viewed on Hong Kong Island. Players are able to see their own fish 1000x enlarged live on the M+ Facade.
