SPRING OF LIVING WATER
HONG KONG BAPTIST UNIVERSITY
The three-part art installation project (glass panels, lightbox, glass sculptures) was developed to reconnect with the root of the school's history - Baptism. To go beyond the usual public artwork, which mainly focus on iconic metaphor, we wanted to create visual and experiential aesthetics that allow the audience to contemplate on that historical idea of Baptism - when one submerges into the water and rises back up, feeling the changes of light in brightness and various colour spectra. The work itself constantly changes over time based on our viewing perspectives, daylight and weather conditions.
The text on wall reads, "For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light." (from the Bible, Psalm 36:9)
