MOBILE FAWN is a real life extension of Faiyaz Jafri’s computer illustration, Vega’s Garden. Through the 3-meter tall sculpture, he created a virtual utopia for his girl who was born in the millennium. Each spot on the fawn is a window, giving a view to a simple, clean and high-tech living space contained in the body of the fawn. We could not “enter” this space, but a first-person perspective is offered through the animation video created by Jafri, which shows a journey through the body – getting inside from the nose, one descends the spiral staircase to reach a living space, where a young girl is holding on to a joystick and enjoying the virtual and liberal space. A juxtaposition of nature and human-made environments, the work represents the human paradox of defying nature and embracing realities.
To receive the MOBILE FAWN, K11 joint hands with the artist to build a 9-meter interactive digital garden. The installation is filled with changing visuals and the public is invited to interact with it through body movements. Come and experience this interactive art installation specially made for Hong Kong!
