Back by popular demand, US artist Jen Lewin (Super Pool, the 45th HKAF in 2017), returns to the Festival with a new artwork, Aqueous.

Aqueous is an interactive landscape of meandering pathways of light. During the day, the sculpture shifts in colour and reflection, mirroring the sky. At night, Aqueous glows in full illuminated interactivity, engaging groups in an ever-changing landscape that promotes community interaction and discovery.

Inspired by the symmetry in natural systems, Aqueous, composed of hundreds of interactive modular platforms, is one of the first pattern-based sculptures created on this scale. Each platform is controlled by code written by the artist, allowing them to sense human interaction individually, but also to link to each other to create interconnected pathways of light effects.

The Artist

Jen Lewin is an internationally recognised new media and interactive sculptor based in Brooklyn, New York. Over her 25-year career, Lewin has honed her architectural background and a highly technical medium to create large-scale, interactive, public sculptures that encourage community interaction and play. Uniting nature and technology, Lewin thinks beyond traditional media to create connected human experiences that bring vibrancy to public spaces. Existing at the intersection of art, technology, and community, her sculptures underscore the ripple effects that each individual has on their community and habitat, the energy of human connection, and the power of collective action.
