LOVE . SWEET . LIFE

A showcase of international artist Choi Jeong Hwa’s work are now exhibited in K11, featuring three large scale art: Including Love me!, Sweet, Sweet, and Life, Life. Choi’s works are inspired by everyday life, and he likes to makes oversized objects from moulded plastics.

Love me! It is in the form of shocking pink pig with wings, its height is 5 meters tall, plus it inflates and deflates! “It’s alive!” The slow breathing pattern of the pig is symbolized as eternal of life and death.

Whereas Sweet Sweet is a tree made from silicon copies of Korean sweets, this piece is about temptation, because sweets are made to look attractive, perhaps all sugar is very bad for health; and Life Life, which is my favorite. It has whole alots of balloons, and then the public can choose to add theirs to the installation. I love it because it reminds me what it felt like to be a child! Being free & playful!

ATT – Something different

We like things to be different, and we like things being made unique. If that is you, ATT, a gosh darn cool brand, might be your answer.

ATT garments are all handmade. They play with strings and fabric with delicious vintage stylings. And last week there was a spinning over ATT – Nicola Formichetti, widely known as the creative director for the French fashion house Mugler, and also the fashion stylist for Lady Gaga, found his latest exceptional sweater from ATT!

Goal! The Dream Begins.

So what would you like to achieve? Finish a book? Grow a tomato plant? Maybe just stop procrastinating and finish the things on hands, so going to bed at a reasonable hour? [ YES ! ] The list goes on …  Then I stumbled upon esty and then I found “I Will Achieve MY Goals Clipboard”, by designer Maiko Kuzunshi. The clipboard looks dandy, and I like the big bold Wooden Caps letters! Now I would love to get one for self help – Stop procrastinating! Focus Focus & Focus.

iPhone Cases

I’ve tried several different cases for my super iPhone4 and the latest one is HelloKitty, the bulky red one. Yes, I hear you; It’s so not me, perhaps it supposed to be a joke. To put on something that was so not me. Well, for the first month, I was pretty cool with the bulky red kitty. Perhaps as days passed by, I started to feeling not right to carry it around, it’s really SO NOT ME…

And this morning, I came across Elasty, a mobile phone cover designed by Yoori Koo. It’s a silicone bumper fitted with elastic strips which allow you to tuck in bills, pens, headphone or even credit cards on the back of iphone4.  Koo’s inspiration is pretty straight forward as with using rubber bands to bundle everything together, he got a place as silver winner of the 2011 Belkin Design competition 🙂 You reckon Elasty will be “so me” ?

Also I  had a blissful time with ZO-EE & Heaven Please yesterday, talking about upcoming project and I go EXCITED 🙂 It’s so good to have them in my life being so supportive!

 


 
 
 

“The show must go on”

My dear friend, Frankie Piper, founder of Visual vom, came to Hong Kong last Saturday and had a splendid time wondering around. One of the favorite boutiques was DayDream Nation, Daydream Nation is a Fashion Arts House founded in 2006, by brother and sister design duo Jing and Kay Wong. alongside their own collection of clothing and accessories, also showcasing local artists, indie bands, and running creative programs.

And here comes – Karen, Tsi Kwan Lau & Gabriel Leung photographers for DayDream Nation 2012 SS12 – “The show must go on”. Lau & Leung were born in Hong Kong; Lau studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design, while Leung finished his undergraduate Temple University. and he is currently lives and works in Glasgow, UK at the same time a Master of Fine Arts candidate at the Glasgow School of Art. The theme “The Show must go on” explains as “The End of the world is near, some people choose to procrastinate, some people choose to steal and break. Some people though, decided that the SHOW MUST GO ON!”. I terribly love the theme of it, and when I was flipping through the SS12 catalog, I couldn’t resist to take one home and Frankie, of cause, took one as well. We both love the colors and the style that they did. It is not just a fashion catalog, it is a storybook, each image has so much to tell.  And now I so want to have my own “the show must go on”.

Jamie Beck Cinematic Gifs are so inspring!

I am addicted to animated gifs! What is an animated gif? An animated GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) file is a graphic image on a Web page that is composed of many different images on top of each other. Then Working together to create a movement. And recently I found a NYC based photographer – Jamie Beck – who creates beautiful cinematic gifs, give you a bit of taste between film & reality and back to the days without FLASH. Definite to look up Jamie’s blog – http://fromme-toyou.tumblr.com ; with a good vintage design, showing old cameras, fashion & street art, also a taste of french at there.
