MAN Ho Cheung
MAN Ho Cheung, Simon, a fresh graduate of HKBU’s Visual Arts program, majoring in design, graphic art, and Chinese art studio.
A person who likes to observe things in his daily life and thinks a lot about their connections between each other. He believes that in order to present an intangible meaning in a design project, it is better to take characteristics from a tangible object to explain the idea, so people can reach out to his message immediately.
The symbolic meaning of the object is not direct or hidden. He believes that it can implicitly express his understanding and views of things, allowing viewers to contemplate and guess their intentions. It is playable and highly reflective. The viewers can consider more about the relationship between oneself and the work.
他喜歡觀察日常生活中的事物，並思考彼此之間的關係，包括他自身與社會。 他認為，為了在作品中展現無形的含義，最好從有形的對象中獲取特徵，來解釋他的想法。 這樣人們就可以立即理解到他所帶出的信息。

Back to original is about the meaning of the word “apple” which has been changed in our materialistic society. The name of “apple” may stand for fruit but also an iPhone. So, I take the packing of apples and Dr. Martine, and turn it into a product with another meaning. For Dr. Martine, the product inside will become a package of medicine, like cough syrup, painkiller and a medical certificate.
