    Master Wu started making neon signs in the ’80s and has been filling Hong Kong’s streets with bright neon signs ever since. But recently, Master Wu has seen his business slow down as brighter-burning and more energy-efficient LED signs emerge. In addition to getting fewer requests, Hong Kong’s iconic neon landscape is also losing thousands of signs per year, ushering in the end of the city’s neon era.

    As Hong Kong’s neon lights start to fade, I spent some time with Master Wu at his neon shop, where he showed me how he makes neon signs, and took a look at Hong Kong’s changing cityscape.

    The night scene like a surreal movie set with smells, sounds and noise, chaotic and disorderly order ,a bit sense of danger and tension in the air, exciting and igniting. A twirl of suction of everything, all energies of mismatch and mishap all together in a split second, you are overloaded with information and overwhelmed. Too much going on around you at the same time! Too fast too. Cinematic and dramatic. That s HK.

    A fun game: when you go out a night, try to tell apart neon and LED lights. In Hyderbad, it's mostly LED.

    Honestly, I prefer the looks for neon, it's more clean and minimalist and cool looking.

    But without neon lights, how would we make vaporwave and synthwave album covers?

    so neon lights, relative to LEDs, are expensive, unsafe, difficult to make, and inefficient? Sounds like LEDs taking over is a great idea.
