Objects of Demonstration serves as an index for Hong Kong's civic development—cataloging in visual dictionary format symbols, performances, rituals, street actions, and political demonstrations in Hong Kong. This compendium of local sources of creative expression and objects and artifacts ranges from ready-made and DIY materials used in a variety of street protests to collections of poems and images from the actions.

Community Museum Project is a collective founded in 2002 by design educators, art curators, and cultural researchers from Hong Kong who examine visual culture and vernacular histories through research and exhibitions.
