In the dynamic scene of contemporary Hongkong public culture, the fascinating representation of such emotional traces as anxiety, bewilderment and despair are embodied and processed in a machinery of highly sophisticated multi-media narrative constructs. The resultant spectacle——viewed through a patchwork of "moves" in language pragmatism (in Lyotard's sense of the just(i ce ) game)——is driven, in my analysis, by a public imaginary which, if mapped onto a network of "rules" governing the respective popular "games," would seem extremely useful for identifying the form and problematic of what might be called the cultural imaginary of Hong Kong.
