Cyberpunk is a term that I think many of you are familiar with. From the classic Ghost in the Shell to Blade Runner, everyone has mechanical prosthesis, streetal-studded holographic projections, skyscrapers, regional conflicts, population explosions. Maybe that’s the first impression that most people have of cyberpunk. Cyberpunk is not a term but more of a world that nobody knows about. The first story to bring Cyberpunk to the altar was William Gibson’s science fiction novel Neuromancer. While William himself is often referred to as the father of “Cyberpunk” because he pioneered a new line of science fiction.
In order to reflect cyberpunk, an element full of science and technology fantasy, the designers finally decided to empower the whole space through art installation after many studies and discussions, also represent the dual charm brought by technology and art through integrating the elements of Mountain and Sea Classics with Cyberpunk. Designers in the early quadrant of the design need to carry out preliminary creation for the entire work shape, from the mechanical arm to the neon lights as well as the selection of artists’ works, they should fulfill strict screening to ensure the overall fit of the whole installation.
Unlike traditional sculptures, this installation has to be assembled on site then reassembled, which makes the work itself more difficult. In order to achieve the most perfect effect in the early stage of the whole device design, it is necessary to accurately proofread every point on site.
The exterior lighting is mainly composed of pink, blue and white. Combined with the theme of mountain and sea paradise, the device is dynamically endowed by text neon lights and movable sliding rails. With enough Chinese characters, bright neon lights and mechanical prosthetic limbs, the audience seems to enter the cyberpunk world full of science fiction and mystery under the description from William Gibson.
In most of the Cyberpunk films and television works we have seen, it is not difficult to find that in the world of Cyberpunk, people can rely on a helmet to learn a lot of external information, such as direction, distance and other data. While in this artwork, the helmet is reflected in its mirror area under the influence of the surrounding lights, as if it is reading the data from the outside world, giving the artwork itself a more technical feeling, just like a real visitor from Cyberpunk is learning about our world.
