“Father and Son” Artwork is a reflection about LEGACY.
And it is the presence of the ancestral DACI Temple nearby which has inspired me here, in how our contemporary world can still coexist and learn from our past and traditions.
Therefore, the Artwork is in 2 pieces and 2 times. It shows a father calling after his son who’s running inside TAIKOO LI. Father is static and represent the tradition and the experience. Son is instead very dynamic and represent the future in the next generation.
The sculpture is made out of mirror polished and painted stainless steel and create through this reflection, an interesting interaction with the landscape. Father seems disappear in the space to recompose himself in his son running toward his future life.
I spent time in the space to experience the way people move around, so I consider the people who frequent this area of the city among my collaborators.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
