Strings made of silicon are strung through undulating metal pipes, inventive public “play” the installation like a harpsichord. Two layers of string create a mirage effect as light, shadow, and viewers pass through. The pure white installation stands out amidst the festival of colors within the mall, and acts as a back drop for the delicate features within the mooncake design. The absolute whiteness is also an extension of lotus flowers’ symbolization of purity in Chinese ideology, as lotuses are made more magnificent by the contrast to their muddy environment. Two different sets of displays were designed specifically for each collection. For the newest collection, layers of “lotus leafs” grows in “still water”. The pop-up installation will be open at Jing’an Kerry Center till September 13th.
