At EAST Hong Kong, we're celebrating the city with an interactive art installation!
Visit us from 5 August to 10 October to play with us.
Sitting in the lobby of EAST, five 'sound monsters' will play unique sounds collected from the Taikoo neighbourhood when you activate them.
Can you guess what sounds they are? Activate all the ‘sound monsters’ together with your friends to hear the full City Symphony!
Doggy's sounds come from "The Meeting" sculptures by Anne Ross, near Oxford House at Taikoo Place.
Lady Wild Card
Can you guess what sounds they are? The sounds are produced within our community, in Taikoo, highlighting the sounds of kids playing in parks.
Come and meet Mr. Bench. His sounds come from the benches that are commonly seen inside our community.
Guess what! The Rotator's sounds come from the exercise machines in Quarry Bay park that you might have walked by.
The sounds of Waterfall Spider simulate the waterfall in front of our hotel.
Our creators built City Symphony entirely with wood recovered from previous exhibition structures and other projects. The inside of the sound monsters was created using plywood while the outside was made using pine wood.
Beyond just creating the sound monsters for guests and the community to enjoy, one of the goals of the project was to upcycle waste wood material and give it another life instead recycling it, a process where objects have to be reduced to its raw form before being reused again.
Upcycling the waste wood to create the sound monsters helped to side step the recycling process and minimise the impact on the environment.
