Jun Ong is an architect-artist based in KL. He have just returned from London after architectural studies/work and decided to pursue a new path in the arts realm. Being in Europe for two years was an incredible learning curve for hi, and has allowed him to experiment his ideas across various mediums and platforms.
‘Personally, I have not seen many lighting installations inspired by KL or Penang and also displayed in an urban context and I think this would be an interesting and unique experience for Malaysians. People were intrigued with the piece as it also flickers selectively, becoming a performance piece at the same time. The nature and size of the installation also creates a eye-level interaction with the audience, while being able to illuminate a vast area of space albeit small in size.’
