Modern culture celebrates exceptional individuals. Sports stars, billionaires, political leaders, and the likes are those we look up to. As different as we are in our lives, our inner selves are nonetheless the same. We all ask for care from friends, and help from others when in need. In a culturally diverse society like Hong Kong, interpersonal relationships are particularly complex and delicate.

‘Overlap’ examines this issue with a group of columns in multiple heights, representing our commonalities and individuality simultaneously. The reflective surfaces of the sculpture allows fragments of our reflection to overlap with other people at random times, signifying the intersecting of our lives in a dense environment such as Hong Kong.

現代都市人喜愛歌頌各階層出類拔萃的人才和崇拜偶像。這些備受群眾愛戴的人,擁有與一般人不一樣的生活和身份,但他們的內心卻與大眾無異。我們同樣關懷及愛護朋友和有需要幫助的人。在香港這個擁有多元文化的自由社會,人際關係更顯得複雜和微妙。

「叢疊」是以高度不同而形態統一的方柱組成,象徵我們的共通及相異之處,同時展現由個體組成群體後的力量。行人的影像重疊在部份以鏡面不銹鋼造成的柱子上,寓意都市中的生命在不同階段中相遇、交匯、與互動。
