Transform Bar II 變形吧二號

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. 

「變形吧二號」是一架可以種植不同植物的流動盆栽派對車,它有三個可以向左右伸展的種植盤讓植物盡量吸取所需陽光。可以種出不同的短根植物例如:小麥草、薄荷葉、蔬菜等。因應不同場合的需要,「變形吧」可以製作供應新鮮的小麥草果汁或Mojito雞尾酒,提昇觀者對種植的好奇及興趣,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,透過變形去適應環境也可說是香港的生存之道。
