Fiona Lee ｜李穎姍
Fiona Lee was born in Hong Kong. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Critical Intermedia Laboratory, from the School of
Creative Media, the City University of Hong Kong. Her artworks are based on a dialogue between installation and performance. Her recent
art practices and inspirations came from the feelings of and concentration on the moment in daily routine, which she explores
like a place of adventure.
Listening is an important connection between herself and the world, as she feels the movement of every single moment. She loves
to listen to sounds from nature, and yet, she is also addicted to noise in the city. This is why she would like to expose her thoughts
between different dimensions of sound in her artwork. She believes creations of art are the progress she makes in exploring and accepting
the possibilities of herself.
Her recent work focuses on the relationship of sound frequencies and electromagnetic fields. Her sound installations and performances have
been featured internationally in Japan, Taiwan, Korea,Manila, Macau, and Hong Kong.

Fukuen occupies a particular state and space by sound and installation.
He graduated from the School of Creative Media in 2012. Till now, he keeps creating artwork yet not in a productive quantity, which he thinks is necessary as part of his life.
