The entry called Milkywave for the 2012 Beijing Design Week. The projects intention is meant as a commentary on the practice of urban fabrication through object that are easily recognizable in a collective memory. Furthermore, adding value and a renewed use to mundane objects.
This particular installation uses 1664 recycled ceramic yogurt bottles and transforms them from a found classic in Beijing Hutongs, to a large-scale light installation.
They are essentially taking a common and recognizable object part of the Beijing landscape that is familiar enough to activate old memories in a new form that will enable new sensations.
The yogurt bottles are suspended from the ceiling and spans a double height space above a hallway and stairs in a fluid wave.
