“Living Architecture” is a series of exhibition and workshops of Microwave International New Media Arts Festival. I have to say there are a few AH-MAZING pieces! These 2 below are very interactive, very “lively”.
HYLOZOIC SERIES by Canadian artist and architect Philip Beesley. It looks like a grand chandelier from afar, and when you get closer, delicate parts are actually digitally fabricated with intriguing bulbs filled with oil, water, and some other unknown liquids. There are “leaves” that will move when you get close, making you feel like you are actually in a digital jungle, especially with the sound effects.
Every single part of the piece is a surprise – just like a huge living creature that you have no idea what it is. But it’s truly beautiful.
This other one is called ADA, a piece by German artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski. It’s kind of like a spaceship by Dath Vadar, a floating balloon with black chalks as spikes, drawing on the white walls. Adults, kids, and everyone can manoeuvre the balloon and draw freely, with the rebouncing actions – you might get your face drawn black as well!
The exhibition is on till today 8pm!
Go and check out at Exhibition Hall, Low Block, Hong Kong City Hall, Central.
