For HONG KONG ASSEMBLAGE DECONSTRUCTED Michael Wolf has photographed a typical roadside installation with hangers, colorful ribbons, rusty staples, umbrellas etc.. Then he disassembled the complete random installation into the individual parts and made an image of each object.

Each bent coat hanger, each scarred staple, every dirty glove, every textile strip, even an old clock and a battered plastic bottle - each object gets its solo performance. The variety of components illustrates the complexity of the constantly changing everyday sculptures. But taken out of context every single object - worn, adjusted, misappropriated or broken - carries the signature of street life in Hong Kong.
