Osage Exhibition

In Art, Exhibition, Hong Kong on January 25, 2008 at 5:18 pm

Today I visited the Osage Exhibition situated in Kwun Tong. I expected a lot from this exhibition, specially because today it was the inaguration, but it came out to be as boring as looking at the air. Actually there were really cool things such as the two wells in which videocamera were installed so you could see the other person in the other one.

The whole exhibition is called Crosscurrents (New Media Art From Beijing and Hong Kong) and Ambient Art (Kinsgsley Ng). Both of the artists were there in the inaguration, and both gave accompanied by some other artists were giving a long (and quite boring to be true) talk. Their aim was exploring the possibility of the new media art and the artistic use of computers and new technologies. The structure, music, light projections and movement in these works are designed to absorb the audience both physically and spiritually.  In contrast with the medium of the talk, Jin Jiangbo gave a nice short talk showing his niceness and sincerity about his art.

However, the best thing was the free food (haha I’m being such as superficial kid). Jen and me agreed that we tried the best cooked ham in Hong Kong (if not in the world) ever.

The best: The well and the food (hm. maybe the wine too)

The worst: The medium, who did not know how to speak Mandarin.

Ok. Tomorrow I’m leaving Vigo again and back to Hong Kong. Just feel like I haven’t done anything useful all these three weeks, anyways I took rest enough and I’m going back to LPCUWC with all all my energy! Attack!Yesterday I finished the season 2 of Grey’s Anatomy  and of course, as all the shows, the intrigue arouses and the last episode ends at the climax moment. — This is a spoiler about GA 2×27 — Meredith is with Dr. Shepper again, Denny dies and Izzie gives up being a doctor. Poor Finn, the actual Meredith’s vet boyfriend, I rather prefer him than Derek who sucks completely because he’s being completely unfaithful to Addison. I’m fed up of the relationship between Derek and Meredith, they just make me sad. Also Dr. Torres and George suck, they are losers! Maybe in the last episodes the situation get better because he does apologise to Meredith.Update: GA 3×03 OMG! What a threesome image on my head! I’m completly hooked to GA.

Best episode ever

In Series on January 1, 2008 at 3:52 pm

I’ve just seen Grey’s Anatomy 2×05 and I conclude that it is the best episode ever. It was so sweet so heart-touching. I can’t believe I become like those TV-obssesed people but I did, anyways I make the most of my holidays. There are 6 days already left… Omg, I have to study like crazy! I’ve also seen a Grey’s Anatomy tee in the ABC website, it was included in a Seriously collection, all of you that have seen the series would know what I’m talking about but there was only for women, whatever. Official merchandising is the best thing ever! Viva capitalism!
