"All colors are translated into sounds and smells. And they ring infinitely sweet like tones. The wind leafs through the trees, and I know what passes there for words"
<The blind woman> by Rainer Maria Rilke
PLAYOHO Art Pavilion comprises of 28 nos. of circular rings on columns with different materials and characters which moves in wind and cast shadows on ground. It creates a free public space for citizens to stop their hectic pace, stay, and hang around freely. Appreciating the skylight and wind. It encourages the public to slow down and rest on the lawn and have a moment of free play, or doing nothing practically but watching the wind move the rings.
Hong Kongers were famous for non-stop busy living, yet they couldn't live an enjoyable life. The work reflects and rethinks the idea of living, and the quality of living, by allowing people to hold their steps, lie down and feel their breaths reacting with the wind.
