[Experimental Space | Art Production Site] 空間除了展示作品之外，還是一個創意生產的平台。他們重視創作過程，認為過程中的轉變和無法預料的結果很有趣，很好玩。Linda 坦言自己是一個思想很開放的人，空間沒有既定的方向，反而仍是在探索當中，她形容每一件發生過的事件都是一個指示器，指示著他們未來的方向; 也不希望對空間懷著某種框架，相信必須經過不同的試驗和不同人的介入才可以產生另一翻景像。Linda強調，在跨媒體的試驗和對傳統創作模式作出疑問的情況下，有趣的東西就會出現。他們大擔地進行了多次藝術實驗，詳情可到他們的專頁查看。
Shamshuipo Open Day was held on June 14, 2015 to unite creative forces in the district. The aim of the event was to arouse public awareness to local culture, and nurture interests in art arppreciation. Interactive programs like guided tour, exhibition, craft markets, and workshops were organized for public to participate. “Zero Out” is an extension of the Open Day to showcase the inspiration and experiences of differennt parties involved.
Whether you have been to Shamshuipo or not, one must have a set of ideas about the area. We invite you to zero out the thoughts, try to experience like you never know this place. Let’s renew our perspectives, embrace the inspirations.
Over 20 people, including artists and owners of stores in Shamshuipo were interviewed, where their feelings and inspirations drawn from the area were collected. Visitors can share their own stories in exchange for the locals’senses.
Sham Shui Po has reinvented itself without losing all of its past, we still have a lot left for those who feel like reminiscence. But just how do its dwellers view themselves as a whole?
I set off to hear what the community voices to us and what the ’sound of the environment’ suggests. The soundscape will perhaps bridge that gap between now and then, between emotions and how life has to move on in a developing community.
Using a contemporary and vivid way to approach the community and we hope to invite the “outsiders” to have a feel about the essence of Sham Shui Po.

Back in old days, it was a seashore around the Shamshuipo area, “Shamshui” means deep-water, while “po” means the pier. In this “deep-water pier”, a lot of things had happened – the outdoor markets, light industrial developement, water restriction, fire, housing developement… In each and every street, building, or even people, there are stories and history – they are all the pearls of this era, each shining faintly, quietly striving to live in the city.
The beads of the work represent the people of Shamshuipo, a sea of beads hanging in a dark alley, shining on their own, undiscovered.

Being an outsider, even it is very difficult to understand the system within the chaotic relations among the inter-related community, it is impossible not to be attracted by the condensed and original atmostphere. The unique form of signages creates series of characteristic images of streets.
Posting bills, a temporary state, to diffuse the image into the community. A special interaction is formed when the creator post the bill and the viewer take it off – a unique connection among people within the community.
There is a sense of freedom when walk through Shamshuipo, without luxury office buildings, one can smell humanity among the traditional shops, wholesale stores, markets;
love to appreciate the historical buildings. But how long can such be kept?
