Scenic Rockery

Napp Studio & Architects

Artist Statement

Art and science are inspired by nature. The iconic characteristics of Hong Kong, one of the most densely populated cities in the world, include its abundant natural landscape and hilly topography. Scenic Rockery reinterprets the contour of Hong Kong’s mountain ranges into a field of artificial flowers with precise calculation. It is also a spectacle of nature represented through science by using heat and temperature to create flowers in different colours during metal oxidation. The colours shift and change when visitors circulate and view it from different angles, resembling the endless cycle of nature. When the sun goes down, the artwork is lit by a layer of glowing pebbles, which looks like the glimmer of hidden lives in nature at night. Throughout the display period, the artificial flowers will slowly wither, especially in autumn through the process of rusting owing to their exposure to oxygen and water. This also validates the “natural” and “scientific” aspects of the design.

Artist Biography

Founded by Aron Tsang and Wesley Ho, Napp Studio & Architects is a design office that works across disciplines between space and object—from architecture, interior design, exhibition to furniture design. They explore design as a minimal yet effective intervention in dialogue with the needs of its users and context. Through filtering and accentuating the essentials in design, they find beauty in simple and clear intentions. The practice has won multiple local and international awards including Gold Award in Taipei International Design Award, Golden Pin Design Award, Perspective’s 40 under 40 Award, and DFA Hong Kong Young Design Talent Award. Their works have been featured in exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale of Architecture and the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.
