The HK Eye Sculpture Public Art Sculpture by LazyBusy Studio

Home > Winners > #66796


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
The HK Eye Sculpture

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Public Art Sculpture

INSPIRATION:
The sculpture represents the dynamic, diversity and vibrancy of Hong Kong as represented by the image of the Victoria Harbour. The skyline takes a radial form emerging from the center of the sculpture to represent the dynamic flux in Hong Kong as a first-class international city. The skylines of the Hong Kong and Kowloon sides are facing each other invertedly to represent the close interaction and dialogue within different parts of the society that makes Hong Kong a loveable place to live.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The HK Eye is a stainless steel sculpture that is inspired by the beauty of the skyline along two sides of the Victoria Harbour. It is located at a very prominent location at the heart of Hong Kong - the Tamar Park which is right adjacent to the government headquarter of the city.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We would like the sculpture to be an interact art with the city. People are encouraged to take photos with the sculpture at the center opening. The mirror finish reflects the environment of the actual skyline onto the figurative skyline of the art piece itself

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Duration of production: 6 months Location: Tamar Park, Hong Kong

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The sculpture is made by digital fabrication and hand crafts using 316 stainless steel

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Size of the sculpture is 2400mmx2400mm

TAGS:
sculpture, public art, stainless steel, city skyline

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We have researched the history of the Victoria Harbour, the years that each buildings along the coast was built and the skyline's overall form and composition before we finalized the sculpture design.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge of the project is the mainly the structural design part. Since the sculpture form is inclined towards the back with only a minimal footing to support the mass on top, careful calculation is needed to minimize the depth of foundation, while making the structure stable enough to support the sculpture on top. Another challenge is the fabrication process. Since the sculpture rings are made of individual buildings in radial form, we have to unfold each radial building piece from the ring into a flat surface for lazercut. The pieces are then weld back onto the ring and polished by hand to give the mirror finish.
