Excess, a fundamental term in modern aesthetic theory, enables the self but also annihilates it. The high density of Hong Kong constitutes one of its fundamental identities, but when is high density too high? Cabaret Series: Excess presents a series of performances about the costs and benefits of high-density urban living, as well as explorations on more sustainable ideas of growth and development.

This symposium brings together the HKU Faculty of Architecture (Department of Architecture) and the Faculty of Arts (Department of Music). The concept behind this project is collaboration and research. To develop a unique project dealing with sound and space, creating a dialogue between two distinct disciplines in architecture and music, which will advance international research into this field and have tangible benefits for non-specialists from the general community.
Rupert is happy to invite you to a two-part open discussion Built | Unbuilt on yet un-accumulated archival collaboration between four interdisciplinary artists.
Unbuilt is a collaboration project between the architect Thomas Tsang, the visual artist Lars Laumann, the composer Cecilia Lopez and the poet Natalie Diaz. Resisting and upholding the disciplinary practices of each artist their work examines and questions the nature of imagination and ambition in plans without a predetermined “object”. The collaborative eye is not a single lens for each artist to look through – instead, it is the single steady gaze of each artist. How are artists inspired or stifled by the pressures of gazing at a collaborative process versus looking forward toward the collaboration’s outcome? The archive of these relationships will result in a future-archeological artifact named as such because it documents a building process that will never become a built body.
