Carsten Nicolai’s pulsing light installation

Spending long days at an art fair can take its toll on even the most seasoned dealer. Neon lighting, a lack of windows and stale air can blight spirits. But for Art Basel Hong Kong this year, the Berlin artist Carsten Nicolai has developed a way of helping you unwind with a pulsing light installation that affects mood. Emanating from the entire 490-meter-long façade of the International Commerce Centre in West Kowloon, the display will be visible throughout the city each night from 15 to 17 May. A phone app will provide the acoustic accompaniment for the full mood-altering experience.
