Honkey Kong

With his project ‘Honkey Kong’ Christian Åslund turned the world into a real 2D video game. Based in Stockholm, Sweden, which is a fairly small city for being a capital without any major tall rising buildings, he was amazed of the view from the skyscraper rooftops in Hong Kong and developed the concept for this project. The characters seem to be navigated through the streets as in an old-school side-scrolling games like Donkey Kong. The images were shot from skyscrapers towards the ground, using a tele lens, while the colorful road markings of Hong Kong perfectly recreated the levels of a video game.
