[chinese blood, irish heart] - DEFUNCT: A-Glow-Glow

Tuesday, April 15, 2008


Microwave organised the latest feast for the public's eyes, A-Glow-Glow features two interactive art installations. Volume by UVA and Phaeodaria by Teddy Lo. Both of which I still don't understand.

Loads of people turned up for the opening ceremony last Friday. I doubt if any of the organisers were so disillusioned to think all those media and fans (excluding the obvious ones holding Andy Lau banners) were there to support the art. Indeed, the presence of Andy Lau did do a lot to draw in the crowds and press, but still I kind of felt sorry for Chris (UVA) and Teddy - most of the cameras were pointed to Andy instead, and so were the screams from many horny pubescent girls. At the end of the day, I hope Andy did go some way in promoting innovative media arts to the public. We need more of these internationalised events!

With the help of a colleague I managed to pull Andy away for a quick English soundbyte. It's so funny, check it out yo. By the way, his latest film Three Kingdoms is bollocks. These period films are just too melodramatic and clearly not violent enough for my tastes.
