IP Wei Ying Emily

葉蔚盈

Everything matters in the world. Not only their existence matters, but also the way they 'live'. As an artist, Emily IP is always interested in observing little things in daily life, which she thinks can give people a different insight of life. While observing those details in life, she also thinks that reflecting on one's philosophy of life through the process is something very important.

During the time she studied in Hong Kong Baptist University, Emily Ip has found her interest in graphic design, ceramics, installation and object design. In her artworks, she always tries to explore different materials, and she tries to look for new ways to express herself.

世界上任何事物都有他的存在價值。不只是他們本身的存在重要,他們生活或生存的方式亦更為重要。通過觀察身邊日常生活的微小事物,葉蔚盈認為可以藉此可啟發人們思考對人生不一樣的觀點。而在觀察同時,也可反思自己的人生觀。

她在學期間,發現了自己對於平面設計、陶瓷、裝置藝術、產品設計等興趣,並嘗試將學習到的不同技巧運用在她的作品裏面。同時間,在她的創作當中,她亦努力發掘和運用不同的新物料,尋找不一樣的方法去表達自己。

我們看待黴菌為腐爛、無用之物。但卻不然,如若我們將所謂「無用」之物,與被稱為「有價值」的事物結合,又會怎樣呢?

We always see mold as something unpleasant and useless. However, is it really true? What will happen when we put something that we called ‘useless’ into somewhere that we preserve things with value?
