Transform Bar 變形吧

Transform Bar is a 3 feet by 4 feet juice bar, it is constructed of recycled wood, its exterior walls are surrounded by planters with wheat grass growing on them. These planters can be push out from the main structure expanding the area of the shop when needed, also maximizing the sun light angles for the grass. The artist will be staying inside the shop blending apple juice by mixing the wheat grass that was cut by the art viewers, bringing forward the message of paying awareness to our food source and extending art appreciation to the sense of taste and consumption. Transform Bar got its inspiration from the Hong Kong street hawkers’ stalls. In order to survive, the owner of the hawkers’ stalls will push out and pull back their merchandise in different times of the day, forming a flexible system. 3 feet by 4 feet is only so big, the merchandise have to match the market demand in order to sustain a proper living, running the business also have to be flexible and legal. It could also be said that The Hong Kong way to survive is to be adoptive with the environment through transformation.

「變形吧」是一間三呎乘四呎的果汁小店,用回收來的木頭建造,種滿小麥草的花盆就是它的外牆。當有需要時這些花盆可以左右推出擴張小店的面積,也可為小草爭取多角度的陽光照射。藝術家將會在小店內為觀眾剪下的小麥草,製作一杯新鮮的混合蘋果汁,從而帶出關注食物來源的訊息及把藝術欣賞擴闊至飲食的感觀層次。「變形吧」的外形從香港街邊的排檔得到靈感啟發,排檔為了生存每天會在不同時段把貨品推出或收合,形成一種能屈能伸的獨特風格。三呎乘四呎空間就是這麼「大」,貨品要迎合市場維持生計,營運就要靈活合法。透過變形去適應環境也可說是香港的生存之道。
