HKVANIT1ES | Poetry in Motion

Vanity plates are the ultimate nonessential car accessory used by their owners to highlight their status, wealth, humour, desires, beliefs or superstitions – and in Hong Kong they can be seen everywhere. Each plate is like a line of poetry racing through the bustling streets of the city. It is poetry in motion.
This project presents an exhaustive image collection of vanity plates, a gallery of poems by Hong Kong and international artists, and a game where you can compose and share your own Hong Kong vanity poems.
HKVANIT1ES is a project by Michele Salati, an Italian Creative Director in Advertising and Artist living in Hong Kong.
