Microwave International New Media Arts Festival 2015 - Be Water I

Art, Exhibition

2015
Hong Kong

"With the curatorial theme of “Be Water”, the 19th Microwave New Media Arts Festival is having its grand opening on 12th November 2015. Revolving around city, technology, and life, Microwave has invited Los Angeles-based artist Nicholas Hanna and Takagi Masakatsu, to come to Hong Kong with his latest media artworks and projects, together with 3 pioneering local maker labs to introduce and demonstrate the maker culture to the public.

In the entrance, We have designed a thematic backdrop with special visual effects. We want to bring the theme become a flowing status, which is moving and vibrating. So, we design a projection mapping backdrop to show the main concepts and theme of this year festival. The water ripples effects are projected on the theme Chinese characters, 上善若水, to show the liquid and flowing status of water. And to present 3 local maker labs artworks and the spirit of maker’s culture, we designed a “3D Printing Joint” to build the structure of stands in this exhibition. Since a lot of materials and wastes are usually produced in exhibitions: wooden partition walls, stands for artworks, mounts for multimedia equipment and so on, we think we can do a little bit more about this by 3D printing technology.

Maker is a group of technology lovers and innovators, enjoying sharing their ideas and skills. When technology penetrates into everyone’s lives and people are so dependent on it, actually, everyone is now a maker. And therefore, we have makerspaces, a place where creative minds meet and allow every possibility to grow. To present the spirit of Maker’s culture, WARE works on the exhibition design and technical direction to occupy the exhibition space with the theme “Be Water”.

We designed a 3D printing jointing unit for woodworking, this joint has 6 angles for the wood to attach. So it becomes a simple and convenient way to build a structure for artworks display without professional fabricators. The whole structure is flexible and changeable with the joint anytime, it represents the flowing status of “Be Water”. All the materials can be dismantled and transported easily, the transportation and removal waste are decreased.
