Material and Physics — Exhibition at The Gallery of Hong Kong Art School

When we create a sculpture work, firstly we need to start with selecting the material. (Where is the material from? Why do you choose this material? Is it organic? Industrial? Readymade object? Found object or Mixed media?)

Based on the feature of materials, artists can use different techniques and skills accordingly. Then they have to consider if it should involve alternative development or Craftsmanship? Does the form of the work confront or go along with the gravity? How to set up the finished work in the space? (A specific site? With Shadow? Indoor? Outdoor? Temporary?) How can it be presented and recorded? (Interactive? Video recording? VR?)

A series of options combined with art, science, physics, logic, experience, and sensation are then available. If we define the finished work as a result, could the fabrication process be defined as the narrative content?
