Lindy Lee’s The Life of Stars — Tenderness of Rain signals the successful ongoing collaboration between the Australian-Chinese artist and UAP. Hovering atop a water landscape in the award-winning Province Midtown Cultural Centre in China, the egg-shaped sculpture is symbolic of earth, the beginning of life, birth and renewal. Lee’s pattern of concentric circles offer a powerful symbol of interconnection, representing relationships, friends, families and communities and the idea that wellbeing occurs naturally when both the individual and the power of interconnection is in balance.
Fabricated in stainless steel, the 6-metre-long work is illuminated internally at night, casting light and pattern across the surrounding water. UAP collaborated with Lindy Lee on the development, fabrication and installation of this work which now sits at the heart of the award-winning Province Midtown Cultural Centre.

[ 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.
