A Rainy Hong Kong

image

I'm dreaming of sunny days

People say “贵人招风雨” (important people will bring with them rain – water is prosperity) which must be true cos’ it rained non-stop for two days when I arrived in Hong Kong :D It still couldn’t dampen my spirit to seek adventures in a country which I call my second home :)

image

It rained so much the rain warning changed from yellow(torrential rain) to red(heavy rain) to black(seriously heavy rain that you can don’t go to work – until it stops)within a night. The steps at the Mid-Levels escalator turned into mini-waterfalls lol. Yesh, we were out in the rain and taking in a scene we haven’t seen in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong, I’m glad to be back :)

i Light Marina Bay - CELEBRATION OF LIFE

CELEBRATION OF LIFE
JUSTIN LEE WITH DORIER ASIA PTE LTD
Part of i Light Marina Bay
Celebration of Life is a playful commentary on the role and value of traditional culture in our contemporary society, Through the use of Pop-art as a playful medium in this work, this installation celebrates Asian values in our modern society through a tongue-in-cheek manner. In this 3D projection installation for the ArtScience Museum, Justin playfully blends traditional Eastern iconography with modern-day symbols of our global capitalist culture. This approach suggests cultural resilience – the ability of Asian culture, to survive, to withstand, to endure, and to adapt to the changing contemporary society.

Covering a wide range of areas, Naoko’s art includes sculpture, visual art, video art, digital art, just to name a few.
