“Walking Through” represent a giant man walking into the narrow lanes of TAIKOO LI.
In my artistic research, I’m always fascinated by the relationship in between the Sculpture and the Architecture.
As the image of the whole TAIKOO LI development concept, the integration of traditional patrimonies in the contemporary world, I’ve created our giant man inspiring me from the grid of the antic street around the Temple and the traditional Chinese wood window frames.
Designed out of this grid and made out of stainless steel, the Walking Man becomes the map itself and a window to the city.
And just as the image of a more human city, in an interesting kinetic effect, the sculpture penetrate and is penetrated by the Architecture and its surrounding.

[ 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.
