As in hardly any other city, there exists a lack of one thing in Hong Kong: space. The photo series Urban Barcode shows the solution for this problem with the help of close-up views: escaping upwards. Housing units are stacked together cellularly and melt into an anonymous mass. However on closer inspection one can detect the difference as well as the individuality in detail and that life is pulsing in confined space.
