Yagzhou Fried Rice Incident Log - summer workshop for the youth

Para/Site Collective , Local designers

Jul 02 – Jul 25, 2004

A summer workshop for youth

As a community-based project created by a collective of young local designers (co-ordinated by Christo Lau), “Yangzhou” draws participants’ energy to collaborate for a situation to reflect and contemplate our daily life. Following ten sessions of workshop led by the collective, it concludes in form of performance, exhibition and publication. 

Co-presented by and venue at Rice-ism

In July, 'Rice-ism' and Para/Site Art Space invites you to 'Yangzhou Fried Rice Incident Log'. This project is based on the concept of 'living with design' - design is not merely for functional use, but also an idea that can be incorporated into everyday life. Like Yangzhou Fried Rice, it is such an eclectic dish that we forget what it is made up of as the original properties of its ingredients have evolved in the course of cooking. With workshops and an exhibition, 'Yangzhou Fried Rice Incident Log' examines the interpretations and concepts on living, culture and design by modifying everyday design objects.

In the exhibition, the audience are invited to immerse themselves into the unknown design experience. Like soft and versatile marine organisms with numerous sensitive arms that follow the sea stream and are alert to the surrounding environment, let us open up our senses, have fun by turning the ordinary life upside down and inside out.
