Using glass and a range of everyday objects such as pebbles, placed in various locations around the gallery space, Edwin Lo seeks to recreate the sound of the Hong Kong seascape in a performance piece that is totally unique to its location and time.
“After several years of performing with sound using computers, I just want to abandon this form and try something new. In this durational performance, I continue to articulate the experience of listening to the seascape and performing with glasses and vibration. I would like to create a sonic image or texture the audience can immerse in,” comments Edwin.
Edwin Lo (b. 1984) graduated from School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong. He had a solo exhibition at the Goethe Institute Hong Kong in 2014, as well as taking part in many overseas exhibitions including FILE 2010 – Electronic Language International Festival in Brazil, EMERGEANDSEE Media Art Festival in Germany 2010 and Around Sound Art Festival in Japan 2014.
