30th May 2024 – (Hong Kong) Hong Kong’s Art Promotion Office and Science Promotion Unit, both under the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD), have jointly organised the highly acclaimed exhibitions, “teamLab: Continuous” and “Science in Art,” which will conclude on June 8, Saturday. Since its opening in March this year, the exhibitions have garnered an overwhelming response from the local public and tourists alike. Visitors are encouraged to seize this final opportunity to experience these captivating exhibitions, which require no admission fee or booking.

The LCSD, in collaboration with teamLab, presents the “teamLab: Continuous” exhibition, featuring two grand-scale art installations. “Resonating Life which Continues to Stand” showcases a mesmerising display of hundreds of luminous ovoids, exhibiting continuously changing colors and sounds triggered by visitors’ interactions. Additionally, “Resonating Trees” transforms the light emitted by dozens of trees in the park, causing them to change colors and emit resonating sound tones in response to the ovoids. Spanning across the lawns of Tamar Park and extending to Victoria Harbour, these exhibits create a breathtaking spectacle of kaleidoscopic colours and soothing soundscapes through the active participation of people. This collaborative artwork between humans and nature conveys the beauty of continuity within the urban landscape, fostering an increased awareness of the presence of others in the same space and environment. The exhibition harmoniously complements the bustling night vistas of Victoria Harbour. Visitors can enjoy the exhibition between 6.30pm and 11pm, with the last entry allowed at 10.50pm. No prior registration is necessary to visit during the opening hours.

The “Science in Art” exhibition showcases two interactive art installations located at the Central and Western District Promenade (Central Section), which are on display around the clock. Created by local art group LAAB Architects, the first installation, “Harbour Cup,” draws inspiration from table soccer. However, unlike the traditional game, there are no goals on either side. Players are encouraged to negotiate and decide how they wish to engage with the game, whether through competition or collaboration. The artwork incorporates photovoltaic-powered LED lights that illuminate the field. At night, when the ball is kicked, its movement triggers sensors made of copper coils within watertight 3D-printed containers, leaving a luminous trail across the field. The second installation, “Schrödinger’s Bed,” designed by artist Dylan Kwok, playfully alludes to Schrödinger’s Cat, a famous thought experiment in quantum mechanics. The artwork features nine cubic frames resembling daybeds, providing a resting area for the public. Within the six cubes, three inflatable cats lie flat, while the remaining three stand upright, inviting the public to interact and experiment with them using cameras.
