Stendhal's syndrome have been exhibit in Hong Kong by Leo Gallery.

The installation is compose with six colerful balloon that remind me the feeling of HK. If you walk on this amazing you can lost your mind and feel new experience. The visitor can walk around the balloons but also can enjoy the installation from inside.

 

The term was named after Marie-Henri Beyle (1783–1842), better known by his penname Stendhal visited Florence. Is a psychosomatic disorder that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to an experience of great personal significance, particularly viewing ART. Stendhal's syndrome can also be used to describe a similar reaction when confronted with immense beauty in the natural world.

I got the same feeling in Hong Kong.
