China is building 19 'supercity clusters'

A tourist junk sails past the 118-storey-high skyscaper International Commerce Centre (ICC), the highest building in Hong Kong, during an audio-visual show "alpha pulse" by German artist Carsten Nicolai, as part of the Art Basel programme, in Hong Kong May 15, 2014. The 50-minute show generates a light pattern that pulsates in a synchronized frequency across the entire facade of ICC, according to the official press release.
