The “Stop & Go” sign in Pier-2 next to the train tracks was erected for the transportation industry back then. But now those trains are no more and the fan-shaped tracks have become part of a railway park full of flowers; the purpose of the sign has also changed. It is now a reminder that we must stop and rest before getting up again to get on with life, just like the idea of LOHAS. Artist His-Te Sung installed a casual swing set in a tension-filled claw-shaped structure, where the contrast highlights the serenity and quietness of the swing set, further advocating the idea of “LOHAS.”
From visual design, color theory and design to sculpturing, artist His-Te Sung has discovered that he can blend all of his skills and learning, such as mechanical knowledge during his vocational school years or the techniques he acquired from a stainless steel foundry in Japan, and apply them to his public artworks, which results in pieces that are full of movement. He constantly revises and reevaluates during the creation process, to make sure the artwork achieves a perfect balance between safety for interaction and its visually-pleasing features.
