We are awed by illusionists who manipulate our perception and seemingly do impossible things, like making things disappear, saw bodies in two and then re-attach them, teleport from one place to another, birds appear from nowhere, walk through walls and so on. These are tricks and illusions.
Nothing really defies gravity, not here on earth; but for the competition you are to use your creativity using tangible materials to give the impression that your installation defies gravity, or at least, your best impression of it.
Illusionists sometimes use reflective materials and light. You can think about that too. We are really interested in your ingenuity and how you would ‘mindshape’ your audience with your installation.
The competition is open to everyone. Architects, artists, designers and students are encouraged to participate. Scientists and engineers are included too.
On a base not larger than 800mm x 800mm, competitors are to design an installation of any height to achieve the impression that the installation is defying gravity.
Your base can be flat on the ground or, it can be a raised pedestal. You may install batteries or even motors inside your pedestal. It is up to you.
The competition will be in two stages:
Stage 1: Submission of sketches for shortlisting.
Stage 2: Installation for final judging exhibition.
The installation may be used for outdoor display, therefore the installation has to be robust or otherwise have a canopy, etc.
Competitors are required to incorporate Hume Cemboard products as part of their design. The products are sponsored for the competition.
Other sponsors are DML Products Sdn Bhd and Sika Kimia. Competitors may approach these sponsors for their products.
