Design & Process
This project has taken a fresh approach on public art projects in Hong Kong. Unlike most public sculptures in Hong Kong, the visitors are encouraged to touch Kaleidome, or enter its space even, rather than just observing it from a distance.
In Asia, Kaleidome can be seen as a pilot project of emerging digital fabrication technique and the Makers’ Movement. While production for most design is usually outsourced to a contractor, in this project, the designers are also the builders. The culture of designer-builder is increasingly popular as part of the Makers’ Movement and Digital Revolution.
