Biu Kee Mahjong X RAD
A reflection on new technologies and traditional hand-crafting skills in the form of a fifty tiles Mahjong mosaic. A commentary on how fast pace offers instant gratification but the longing for handmade items crafted with passion and personality still lingers.
Handwritten Chinese calligraphy has been digitized and converted into a tracing mask with the aid of a laser cutter. This mask became a tool for Uncle King to transfer the Chinese characters onto the Mahjong tiles.
