Echo with clouds (2019)


Hong Kong is a city of mountains. In the urban setting, hills and mountains are like large reclining chairs that we can sit and rest. Every hike in the mountains is like a journey of discovery ― new destination, new direction, new path, new scenery and new self. Hills and mountains become a place for us to think about life.






Modelled on Robin's Nest, a hill near Sha Tau Kok in the New Territories, Echo with clouds is an outdoor installation developed around hills and clouds. The vibrant and lush forests of Robin's Nest support more than 600 flora and fauna species. The smooth and reflective blocks are stacked up in this art installation to mimik the Robin's Nest, and the colour of the work changes with light to reflect the transience of the clouds. The audience can lie down to enjoy the city skyline, while imagining walking by Robin's Nest under the clouds, listening to the wind and different conversations. People can open their eyes, ears and hearts sitting leisurely. Can the other sound beyond urban development be heard?

《山中映雲》


香港遍佈群山。山嶺就像城市裡的大型臥椅,供我們歇息。每次登山,都是一次發掘之旅——新目的地、新方向、新道路、新的風景、新的自己,山嶺成了我們思考生命的場域。

《山中映雲》是以山和雲天為主題而創作的户外裝置作品,以新界沙頭角附近的山峰——紅花嶺為藍本。紅花嶺山林蒼翠、生機勃勃,動植物種類多達六百多種。這組作品營造紅花嶺的風景,由平滑反光的塊體層疊成山嶺的形狀,塊體的顏色隨光線變化,反映天空雲彩的變幻無窮,讓走過的人仿如置身紅花嶺與雲層之中,同時,又可臥著歇息,觀賞自然景物與都市面貌,又或聆聽風的聲音與你我他之間的話語。閒著,張開雙眼,打開耳朵,敞開心靈,你聽到都市發展以外的另一種聲音嗎?
