Artist's Concept:
The photographic competition entitled "Our Memories of the Western District" was the inaugural activity of the West Island Line Community Art Programme. Unique images of the HKU area were captured by local residents and the winning photographs from the champion, 1st runner-up, 2nd runner-up and merit award recipients were selected as the theme images for use in HKU Station. These photographic images were then pixelated using thousands of images collected from the community and then combined with monochrome graphics to create a panoramic collage, reflecting the uniqueness and culture of Western District with traditional buildings and daily life of the local community.

The competition was co-organised by the MTR Corporation and the Central and Western District Council, with support from the local community groups. The composition of the collage artwork was created in-house by staff of the MTR Corporation.
