About the artwork
To celebrate 135 years of HKU Med this digital animated collage piece incorporated photos that I've taken from around campus and also photos from the HKU Med archives dating as far back as 1887. This artwork is part of a collaborative digital art exhibition curated by Artistverse. With my love for architecture and urban design it was my pleasure to reimagine the buildings at HKU Med from past and present into something new. The composition uses the angles of the buildings to draw the attention into the middle of the image, where the collage centralises over a mass of mountain. The elements in the image are arranged according to their perspectives to give an 'explosion' type feeling to the overall composition. The artwork is displayed on Zone 7 - on the main screen of the Faculty Administration Wing. The digital exhibition will run from July - Sept 2022.
