黃美琪

WONG Mei Ki, Maggie creates works inspired by people and the society, and seeks to portray a world between reality and illusion. In her practice, she invites the viewer to explore the depth of the world and to reflect upon life. Imbued with both the aesthetics and the practical functions, her works explore and reform the boundary between art and design. She seeks to challenge the stereotypical idea that design is about the pragmatic while art is hard to be understood.

WONG explores a wide range of disciplines, spanning across graphic design, handicrafts, photography, installation, and interactive multimedia design. She recreates boring and dull artworks with an open mind to infinite possibilities in art. She works with different materials in order to interact with the audiences through senses and cognition.

'Every decision we make on a moment-to-moment basis creates our future.'

In Decision Laboratory, WONG Mei Ki, Maggie creates a surreal scene for the audience to take part in. When the boundaries between 'gain and loss' are becoming blurry, will the audiences obey the rules, or make different decisions and re-define the meaning of our lives?

「生命中逃不過的,是抉擇;每一個抉擇,都會改寫你往後的旅程。」

黃美琪在《抉擇實驗室》中建構出一個虛擬場景讓觀眾參與其中。當「得與失」之間的界線變得模糊,觀眾是會順從規則,還是作出不同的取捨、重新思考自己對生命的定義?
