Strings Calligraphy
draws inspiration from the intersection of strings music
and the Chinese art of calligraphy, where the uses of motion and lines are explored
both musically and visually in a performance interweaving
dance, music and projected visual imagery,
blending Chinese and western music and dance
with energetic brush strokes.


Lampo Leong used eight projectors to project
synchronized changing images onto the stage and the dancers

综合媒体作品《弦墨》
的创作灵感源于书法,表现线条与运动的交织。
通过视觉和听觉将书法的线条、肢体的舞动和线性的弦乐溶于一体,
力图在后现代国际性艺术语汇中以多媒体制作
呈现中、西方文化和各种艺术形式的交错与重叠,
以达至在更新层面上的融通与整合。
