This installation responds to the vanishing natural environment in the city centre of Hong Kong, in the form of a lighting installation made by bamboo. It is an interactive installation that invites the public to reconnect to our nature through all our senses. Visitors may simultaneously view, touch, feel, listen to and smell the bamboo installation within the exhibition area. Bamboos interweave to form a firm lattice, akin to flowers blossoming on the exterior of skyscrapers. This installation is going to remind us of bamboos’ inner beauty which has always been ignored. The scaffolding grids are cut into small pieces and combined to form cylinder-shaped “Light-columns”, which the light penetrates through the gaps in between bamboos’ ring-shaped sections. When it is an empty space, the leaking light between bamboos will flicker depending on the rapid paced pedestrians outside the tunnel. When visitors enter the exhibition area, the sensors at the bottom of bamboos will determine their positions and spread its location to other bamboo. Lights will dim one by one and drum sound will ripple from speakers. The bamboos will follow visitors’ movement to adjust the glow of lights.

Urban Sense considers the nature of the urban environment and the things that make Hong Kong the most unique of cities. The exhibition looks at the features of contemporary urban life which shape our experiences - architecture, people, space, work, leisure, technology, sound, vision... elements that work together or compete against each other for our attention, to create a vision of what is possible in the city around us. Inspired by the complex sounds, places, culture, history and people of Hong Kong, please join our circular route at any point throughout the mall. Your visit will take you to new, but curiously familiar locations, places that stretch the imagination or change perceptions of what you thought you knew and what may be possible one day.

這件竹製的照明系統是對香港城市中心日漸消失的自然環境的一個回應。該互動裝置通過激活人的五感,邀請公眾重新與自然發生連接。這件竹製裝置可供展區內的觀眾同時觀看、觸摸、感覺、聆聽及嗅聞,向我們呈現常被大眾遺忘的竹子的內在美。常見的腳手架原料經過切割和重組化身爲圓柱形的「燈柱」,燈光從竹身的環狀空隙部分射出。展區內無人時,竹林間洩漏出的燈光隨着週邊行人的步速閃爍不一;而當觀眾進入展區時,竹子底部的感應器會探測到觀眾的位置,並將訊息傳送至其它竹子,此時燈柱會一株株逐漸變暗,與此同時音響傳送出陣陣鼓聲。竹子將跟隨觀眾的動態調節燈光照明。

《築 • 聽 • 覺》探討城市中塑造香港成為獨特城市的自然元素及特性。從塑造當代都市生活經驗的元素出發 —— 建築、空間、工作、休閒、科技、聲音、視覺⋯⋯ 這些元素或和諧共存,或因彼此的衝突碰撞而顯得格外奪目,探討我們身處的城市-香港的可能性。策展的靈感來自香港多元且繁複的聲音、地域、文化、歷史及城市人。從環繞整個商場的展覽路線上任選一點,觀眾將踏足既新鮮又帶有微妙熟悉感的地方,這些地方延展了我們的想像;改變我們的認知,使我們對心目中的已知與未來的可能性重新詮釋。
