Finally the wait is over and the summer pavilion is open to public. It’s a work of contrasts in visuality and texture. The interior is filled with the woody smell of the cork surface, while the exterior is surrounded by the visual and olfactory stimulations of the greens…

Before the pavilion is finally open to public tomorrow 1st June 2012, it is important to acknowledge those construction workers who have made all this possible. A great architectural work is not only the work of architects and artists; it is also work of those who built it. The construction of the pavilion was confronted with various difficulties which were eventually overcome. Despite that the whole construction process was hidden behind the fence, the sound of it could still be heard and that was the only way the process and the workers made their presence and contribution to making it all possible. Therefore I decided to record the sound of the construction to document the process that is often overlooked and taken for granted.

Following Mad Colours’ single launch, the trio put on a show at Site Gallery, Sheffield, showcasing their artworks… Here are a few highlights.

Finally got round to seeing Kings Cross’ concourse which has been built ready for the Games.

Chen Man’s first solo exhibition at Manchester Chinese Arts Centre

Great works but the exhibition space hardly does the works any justice. The spectacles exhibited by the works themselves are significantly undermined by the brightness of the space reflected by the white wall… Otherwise, the show would have been a complete success.
