Music Puddles
June 2nd, 2017
Installation Music

Henry created an interactive installation “Music Puddles” at Oi! (an art space in Hong Kong). The idea came from his daughter jumping on water puddles. Using the Kinect to detect the circle marks on the floor, this setup lets people jump not on water, but on music, in an experience that is intuitive and fun.

Henry 於油街實現展出了一個音樂裝置 “Music Puddles”,靈感來自女兒喜愛跳水氹的情景,利用 Kinect 裝置偵測地面的圖案,讓參與者以跳水氹的動作與音樂互動,過程簡單而有趣。

Shadow Harp Mono at Sónar Hong Kong 2017
May 8th, 2017
Installation Music

Henry’s work Shadow Harp Mono, commissioned by Levi’s, was exhibited at the electronic music festival Sónar Hong Kong 2017. As a continuation of Shadow Harp, his earlier work, the installation combines body movements with different geometric lines and shapes, to translate the rhythmic experience of music-listening into playful visuals.

Henry 早前為 Levi’s 設計的 Shadow Harp Mono 於 Sónar Hong Kong 2017 電子音樂節展出,作品是延續 Shadow Harp 的概念而設計的互動裝置,透過把肢體動作及不同元素,如箭形、彈簧、弦線等的結合,把感受音樂時帶來的節奏感轉換成有趣的視覺影像
