"Roasted Legoosey" aims to concretize the vanishing Hong Kong Dai Pai Dong (open-air food stalls) Culture in the form of a lighting installation. As traditional roadside diners are being gradually replaced by modern air-conditioned restaurants as a result of urban renewal, the once-familiar streetscape and dining culture are declining and will soon be erased from the urban fabric. This cultural legacy will become a collective memory or even be forgotten. Through the "Roasted Legoosey", we would like to materialize this intangible cultural heritage and to raise public awareness of the current urban redevelopment in Hong Kong.
