The Emblems

Both the colonial and current Hong Kong governments use the Chinese dragon as their emblems or logos. The British government used the drag on as a stereotypical representation of the Chinese culture of Hong Kong, whereas the Chinese government celebrates the Chinese tradition with t he dragon logo. This procedural drawing is created based on the two rep resentations of Hong Kong. This drawing explores the ambiguities of the representation of the dragon and criticizes the cultural transition of Hong Kong.
