KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 21 (Bernama) -- Presented by First Initiative Foundation (FIF) and supported by the Hong Kong Tourism Board, "Tick Tock, Tick Tock" is now on view until Jan 1, next year.

The large-scale public art exhibition is located next to an iconic landmark, the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower, featuring renowned American artist WhIsBe's largest art piece to date, a giant red sculpture standing over eight metres high.

“After visiting Hong Kong a few years ago, I was inspired by the landscape and challenged with how I could integrate my work into the city’s identity. 

“I am excited to return to Hong Kong with the next evolution of the Vandal Gummy, a brand-new installation incorporating digital and interactive elements,” said WhIsBe.

According to a statement, the three-storey-high sculpture combines the modern gummy bear with prehistoric dinosaurs, along with another two-metre-plus tall teal sculpture set on the Victoria Harbour waterfront. 

The harbour’s glittering, shimmering water surface is part of the display via a special mirror/chrome coating effect on the sculpture, incorporating technological elements such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Instagram filters, allowing the public to capture sweet moments.

In this latest artwork, WhIsBe replaced his signature physical plaque with an LED screen for the first time, on which a variety of videos are shown.

This includes a countdown timer that syncs with the hourly chime from the Clock Tower, and memorable moments collected from the Hong Kong public by FIF, highlighting the relationship between public art and the local community.
