This Metal Art Installation Reflects the Natural Cycle of Wild Plants | Scenic Rockery

At the recently concluded Hong Kong art project, Napp Studio and Architects led by Wesley Ho and Aron Tsang displayed its work called Scenic Rockery at Tamar Park. Encapsulating the togetherness of science and nature, the installation is designed in the shape of a flower that is made out of oxidising metal at different temperatures.

 
Inspired by nature, this art and science piece is one of the most iconic installations that defines the densest city in the world.

The flower-like installation has been articulately arranged to redefine the contours of Hong Kong’s mountain ranges that capture the ever-changing nature of the city. Know more about the art installation at SURFACES REPORTER (SR).

The installation is designed in the shape of a flower that is made out of oxidising metal at different temperatures.

Inspired by nature, this art and science piece is one of the most iconic installations that defines the densest city in the world. Redefining Hong Kong’s abundant natural landscape and hilly topography, Scenic Rockery borrows HK mountain ranges and narrates its glorious landscape through science into a field of artificial flowers. The architects have interpreted this spectacle of nature through science by using heat and temperature to create flowers of different colours of metal oxidation.

Once the sun sets, the Scenic Rockery gets lit by a layer of glowing pebbles that look like the hidden lives in nature at night.

The changes in its colours as spectators circulate and view it from different angles resemble the endless cycle of nature. Once the sun sets, the Scenic Rockery gets lit by a layer of glowing pebbles that look like the hidden lives in nature at night. Similar to flowers, these artificial flowers slowly wither upon autumn through rusting on account of their exposure to air and water, which has been designed by natural and scientific mechanisms.
