Alien captured on Video, Eason 陳奕迅 《The Key》專輯封面的外星人 / pinkwork video

human Prodip gave this Alien Figure to me a few years ago. Surprisingly I saw its image again recently, on cover of hk pop star Eason Chan ‘s latest album “The Key“. So I brought “it” out again and snapped a video of “it” using my phone yesterday . Prodip is a members of hk legendary hip hop group LMF cum designer. And this figure was designed by him and world renowned artist Michael Lau, based on or inspired by a real Alien abduction case (The Pascagoula Abduction Incident, 1973) …

這隻「外星人」figure是LMF阿庭幾年前送給我的,他說是參照外國一個真實的「人類被外星人綁架」個案而設計的。最近竟然又給我看見「牠」在陳奕迅最新專輯《The Key》的封面出現,便忽然興起,拿牠出來拍攝了這段無聊短片。也是那句,雖然大家都是外星生命體,但跟其實不太熟 … 喵 。

visited the new agnes b. ‘s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE & met a French 到訪新「b仔」藝術廊

MEOW~ just visited the new agnes b. ‘s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE (it moved from Star Street to 118 Hollywood Road, Central) and came across this French human / artist ~ Abdelkader Benchamma who was busy preparing for his mixed media exhibition “The Invention of the Cave“. He insists doing all his artworks on the site. Of course I took this chance to snap some photos of him and also my “Do you believe Aliens exist?” video series … :lol:

路經agnes b的新藝術廊﹝由灣仔星街,搬了去中環荷里活道118號﹞,碰見這位法國人類/藝術家~Abdelkader Benchamma,他正忙於繪畫一幅大壁畫,準備他在這裡的「洞穴」主題多媒體展覽。他堅持所有展覽品都要即場創作 … 而我當然順便跟他拍了這相片及我最喜歡的「信不信外星生命體存在?」系列短片 …

PINKCAT ‘s food photography 粉紅貓的食物攝影…

Though I’m into portrait photography, recently I also shot some food photos and videos. Take a LOOK … 雖然一向影「」居多,最近也拍了一些食物的相片及小短片。去看看 … 喵。

* accidentally came across a “partially” purple corn cob, a mushroom in the kitchen and shot some photos … 廚房無意中見到幾條紫色栗米,顏色好靚,馬上拍幾張相 … 影開就影埋隻蘑菇 。

:P

Holga Food photo Experiment @ agnès b. café 用Holga拍攝食物相片實驗。

MEOW, special thank to agnès b. for allowing me to do the experiemnt at their café. I just told their PRs I (a CAT from pinkwork city) would like to do some shooting experiment using my Holga plastic camera at their cafe. They were so nice and asked whether they had to prepare some specially-made cakes for my shooting. Well, it’s not necessary cause the cakes on their shop are already very colorful.

You might question how could I use this plastic camera to shoot close-up or macro photo. Its closest focus lenght is 0.7 m! Of course my Holga have to put on a Macro or Close-up Lens (bought from Holga shop, just HK$68 per set). To know more about how I shot these photo, could see my article in this issue (624, p122~p123) of “Weekend Weekly” magazine. Yes, since the experiment result is quite good, I decided to write an article about this in my “Weekend Weekly” magazine ‘s column.

真的要多謝 agnès b.公關們的幫忙,原本粉紅貓只不過是通知她們,我打算在她們的銅鑼灣café內﹝貪那裡有黑白階磚地板﹞,用Holga塑膠相機做些「食物拍攝實驗」。「放心,我只用一些Lo-fi器材,佔用餐廳一小角落,絕不會騷擾到她們的客人的」當時我跟她們說。

誰知她們十分好人,還問我要不要特別製作一些蛋糕給我拍攝。當然不用了,她們店內已有很多七彩繽紛的蛋糕。你可能奇怪Holga最近的拍攝焦距是0.7米左右,怎可能用來拍微距或近距的食物相?方法是套上一塊在「Holga專門店」有售,只是HK$68大元的塑膠微距或近攝鏡片。

結果,出來的相片依然有Holga相的「原始」風味,所以決定在我《新假期》的專欄稿,寫這個主題。想知詳情,可看看今期﹝第624期,122 ~ 123頁﹞這篇稿啦。

Just shot some photos of a French artist at agnès b.’ s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE !「b仔」藝術廊展覽

:P Yes, agnès b.’ s LIBRAIRIE GALERIE would has a new exhibition around every 3 months and pinkcat would usually come to talk to and shoot a SHORT video of the artist. This time the exhibition title is “Rezzak Coiffure” by French Artist – Franck Rezzak which features his 27 paintings, sculptures and interactive installations. You might had seen this artist’s art work before, cause he had an installation named “door no. 103” being featured in 2008 “Modern Young People” exhibition in the SAME gallery.

So what’s his solo exhibition about? It’s actually the first chapter of his “Rezzak Beauty Institute” art project. This project is about “trans-humanity” and in his HK exhibition part, the theme is HAIR STYLING, a simple way of transformation.

SOUND very abstract but I just saw this exhibition this morning and his artworks are very colorful and “BIG” scale, I would say it’s the most interesting one, well compared to the recent few exhibitions hold in the same place :idea:

date: 22 Jan ~ 07 May 2011
address: 1st floor, 18 wing fung street, wanchai, hong kong.
tel: 2869 5505

agnès b.藝術廊通常每隔三個月便會有一個新展覽,通常每次粉紅貓都會走去跟那位藝術家聊聊及拍一條短片。今次輪到法國藝術家Franck Rezzak的「Rezzak Coiffure」展覽。這其實是他的一個名為「Rezzak Beauty Institute」,探討「人類改造」(Trans-humanity)的藝術計劃三步曲的首個單元。香港部份的展覽就是以 「髮廊」作為主題,一種最簡單的「轉換」和「改造」方式。展館內會看到Franck Rezzak的27件幅畫作、雕塑及裝置藝術。

聽起來好像很抽象,不過今早天寒地凍 8O 起來看了這個展覽,發覺展品很多,畫作又色彩豐富,是「b仔」藝術廊近期「」有趣的一個展覽呀!

其實大家可能見過Franck的作品,因為08年agnes b藝術廊一個名為「Modern Young People」的展覽,便展出過他的一個叫「door no. 103」的裝置作品。

Franck told me DON’T forget to mention his website which is a very important part (or guildline) of his art project. Franck特別叫我要提一提他的網站,所以不能遺漏的!趁我還記得… :-)
