About This Project

 

“Fermata” was completed in Hong Kong amid the “Umbrella Movement” and “Occupy Central” – a political confrontation between the pro-Government and pro-Democratic groups. The work attempted to create a much-needed pausing minute of peace –  momentarily liberating people from the fight.

 

This art installation was made by LAAB in collaboration with Chailie Ho Fashion Studio and Allan Au – an interdisciplinary team of architects, fashion designers, media artists and engineers.

 

13 Umbrellas were hacked to become the bones of 13 Jellyfish, dressed in a skin of feather-weight silk. Each Jellyfish transformed independently as a robot and changed its colors according to the rhythm of the music.

 

“Fermata” engaged with the mood of people by orchestrating a tempo with transforming mechanical architecture, lighting and music. As its name depicts, the artwork gradually mitigated the tempo of environment and approach a moment of serenity.

 

上一次思緒飛舞的瞬間,停格的片刻是不安、憂慮、還是匆忙?

 

由建築師、 時裝設計師、工程師以及媒體設計師共同創作,「緒舞間」利用機動結構、光線和音樂的節奏來跟人們的情緒對話。 我們希望藉著「緒舞間」讓都巿人可以暫時離開煩囂的城巿環境,給他們一個空間停下來緩一緩。 在這裏,四周環境的脈博會逐漸地緩慢下來,讓人們呼吸難得的片刻平靜。
