CLP's Distribution Box Beautification Project is set out to connect art with people and the community to aim for a greener and sustainable community together. By bringing a touch of contemporary art depicting local landmarks, culture and green elements by local artists, the project aims to power up the community with bright colours, social connectivity and common goal for a greener future. The application of augmented reality technology, which brings artistic creations to life, add immersive experiences to audiences. The project also includes a "Community Power Journey" for young people to enhance their knowledge in electricity, energy conservation, and community culture and history through visiting beautified distribution boxes and local landmarks.
The project pilots in Hung Hom, Sham Shui Po, Tsuen Wan West and Tuen Mun (San Hui). Beautified distribution box in each district can be found in the following maps.
CLP has collaborated with four local artists to design and develop the beautified distribution boxes in the four pilot districts.
Each district's distribution box beautification design has a unique story behind it. You can click on the respective designs below to know more about their creation.
The Distribution Box Beautification Project combines art and technology by applying augmented reality technology to artistic creations in the form of IG filter. Through IG filters, the art pieces break through conventional graphic designs and jump out of the box to enhance audience's experience of art appreciation. At the same time, the delivery of relevant local characteristics and green messages in the artistic creations is strengthened.
The public can access the IG filters by scanning the respective QR codes on the side of the beautified distribution boxes through their smartphones. The design of the filters are unique in each of the four pilot districts.
CLP has produced a 'Hunting Gamebook' to encourage the public to visit and appreciate the beautified distribution boxes in person. The visits can be done in each district in self-guided tours and learn about electricity and energy saving. The public can also learn about the unique local culture by visiting the scenic spots in each district.
Members of the public can download the game book by pressing the image below.
"Community Power Journey" guided tours will lead students from about thirty schools in the four pilot districts to visit beautified distribution boxes and local landmarks. There are also opportunities to visit featured shops to communicate with residents. Through the tour, Students could learn about electricity, energy saving, history in the district and relationship between electricity and our community. The Community Power Journey will be open to primary and secondary schools in the four pilot districts in the new school year in September this year.
