HKRUNWAY Parachuting to Wan Chai is a multi-disciplinary art project that engages in the experimentation of new media to showcase fashion designs captured by 3D photogrammetry and redesigned into unique moving images. Dancers traverse through architectural installations with music specially commissioned for every collection, adding living vitality and form to the projections

About the Design of the Performance

 

The performance is founded upon a scenographic design which constructs an abstract space to objectify the intimate relationship among human skin, material fabric and physical space. The primal role of clothing as a junction between skin and space is signified by the use of semi-translucent fabrics as projection screens, thereby making visible its tangible and material quality. With content teased out from hundreds of 360-degree photographs, each projection ends theatrically with clothes dissolving into the air, further reinforcing the process of abstraction of the whole design.

About the Concept of Parachute

 

This performance is conceived under the concept of a “parachute project” in which the prototype of an art project is first constructed abstractly and, like a parachute, it can be landed on and adapted to any location. As a result, every “landing” of a parachute project will be a new and unique experience. The original project, titled HK Runway, was conceptualized in 2016 and realized in 2017 to experiment with alternative methodologies to present fashion as an artistic project. In 2018, the performance of the art project will be “parachuted” for the first time to Wan Chai. By reaching out to and exploring the localities of different spots in our urban space, the parachute project is a way to connect and engage the public.
