Technology hasn’t just reshaped many aspects of our daily lives, it has also redefined and changed how art is made. Today’s artists may use an array of technological and scientific tools, including lasers, augmented reality, 3D printing, computer programming, robotics and data, to create their works. Last weekend, to celebrate its 70 years in Hong Kong, the British Council organised a three-day festival, “SPARK: The Science and Art of Creativity”. It included more than 30 events, involving roughly 50 creative and education partners from the UK and Hong Kong and bringing together art and science.
Chonotenki or 超能天氣 is a local alternative band. The four members described it as a “super happy-go-lucky” band that strives to be part of the Hong Kong music scene come rain or shine. Formed in 2016, the band writes its own songs and has put a demo together. They’ll perform at February’s Freespace Happening. They’re here now to tell us more.
