CarbonScape is a visualisation of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels in the atmosphere, according to the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration). In 2017, the concentration of CO2 soared to its highest in the past three million years, with industrialization and the use of fossil fuels two of the major factors. The installation is arranged as in a bamboo, forest-like landscape, where chimney-like tubes with changing ambience noises, imitates those frequently found on power plants and factories; the black spheres inside the tubes indicate the CO2 levels around the globe. Immersing the viewer in an environment taken over by chimneys, CarbonScape thinks about what our position as humans should be, while the earth’s capacity for life reaches its limits.
Dynamicity 2017 - Scene IV: Collided Cityscape
As one looks back into the past 20 years, one sees that Hong Kong has gone through lots of ups and downs; we are proud to stand still under the Lion Rock and to hold tight the core values of the Hong Kong Spirit. DynamiCity 2017 examines the data of different cities, and presents four unique sceneries of transient vibes and shapes of vibrant city transformed into abstract imagery.
Based on hash-tagged and geo-tagged photos on the social media feed, the work recreates a collage of memories. The surrealistic imagery contains multi location-time-stamp and features 10 unique attractions of Hong Kong from after 1997.
RadianceScape Live! is an audiovisual performance that visualizes live radiation data of different major cities (New York, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Berlin and Paris…) comparing them to that of Chernobyl and Fukushima. It is an extension of the RadianceScape 2016 installation, which featured the graphical score of the radiation data of Chernobyl and Fukushima in 2016--the year marking the 30th and the 5th anniversary of each nuclear disaster respectively.
In 2017 RadianceScape Live! was shown at the Sonar Festival, Hong Kong, the WRO Media Art Biennale, Wrocław, Poland, and the European Media Art Festival, Osnabruch, Germany; VaporScape (h0nh1m x NikeLab) was shown at Art Central, Hong Kong.
In 2016 The RadianceScape project was selected for the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria, the Beijing Media Art Biennale, in Beijing, and the Microwave International New Media Arts Festival.
