Living in times where culture, politics and economics are now all intricately bound with cyberspace,  we begin to wonder if we are experiencing a combination of "High Tech, Low Life," a prominent feature of Cyberpunk literature and cinema which refers to the struggle of alienated individuals confronted with a technological monopoly and a prevailing stagnation.  A guided tour of Tai Kwun Contemporary's exhibition "Phantom Plane, Cyberpunk in the Year of the Future" was organised for Cultural Studies students on 3rd January, 2020.  Students were introduced to the origins of cyberpunk associated with a pervasive sense of decay through the curated experience of art and visual culture in the start of a new decade. By observing the exhibits, students gained insights into cyberpunk narratives involving the issues such as mind manipulation, consumerism, and the loss of individuality.
