The main visual employs contemporary design techniques to showcase the historical context of silk trade between Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Macau, and the West during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The concept features horizontal lines symbolizing the connection between the three cities on the Eastern shores and the West. The visual illustrations depict overlapping mountains, representing the spatial and temporal dimensions of the era. 

The exhibition takes place on the third floor of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, in front of floor-to-ceiling windows. We aim to utilize the surrounding Victoria Harbour view as part of the exhibition space, seamlessly integrating it with the display elements. Considering the autumn-winter season in Hong Kong during the exhibition period, sunlight will shine from the south to the north in the afternoon. Therefore, we have designed the exhibit items and decorative elements on wavy steel plates. The afternoon sunlight will penetrate the silk fabric printed with landscape paintings and refract waves of light onto the platform. Waves of light are reflected on the stage, allowing the audience to experience the light and shadow of the old days in the theme of the exhibition "Those Days" under the veil.
