Traditional heritage RE-skinned with new material and technologies
Boxes to keep treasures, rare fabrics from the Song and the Tang Dynasty, sophisticated craft techniques and future textiles: RE-skin – is the story of the improbable encounter, in a pocket of Dashilar.
A craft adventure between traditional Beijing Box Maker Guo Derui and unconventional textile experimentalist Elaine Yan Ling Ng, founder of THE FABRICK LAB, Hong Kong.
Commissioned by BJDW and Dashilar Project as part of the Dashilar Pilot Craft Program, RE-skin is a new techno-craft experience by Elaine Ng Yan Ling. After having worked in Guizhou exploring new potential for traditional craft, Elaine continues her exploration of how technology and craft can service each other in her latest collaboration with Mr Guo.

Stage lighting Commissioned by TEDxWanChai. Deriving inspiration from both Eastern and Western heritage values in the Wan Chaidistrict of Hong Kong, the commission shows a celebration of the buzzing vibes in the area. The typography is designed to depict the architectural silhouette of Hong Kong, densely dominated by high-rise buildings. Using iconic imagery from Wan Chai landmarks, the graphics of this edition are translated onto light boxes to encourage an increasingly energetic ambience. Photographic metaphors of Wan Chai are merged with a bright neon colour palette, to playfully express the multidisciplinary culture of the district.
