Yes, I've been a little slow with the posting so I'm continuing with the update. I went to they DMY Design Festival in Berlin with Ambassadors of Design - that happened in June.
The Handsome team decided to do something a little bit different from usual – we had a tiny bit of funding and about 2 weeks so we made some simple slide projectors out of leftover plastic from a sign maker in Fortress Hill, some lenses from a laboratory glassware shop in Wong Chuk Hang, a few metal rods from a hardware store in To Kwa Wan and some Ikea lamps (Causeway).
We made our own customized slide format! (Thanks to Elise Bourdeau and Ali Van for helping out with that). We were hoping for traditional slides from those old school slide projectors but apparently nobody does that anymore. Ours turned out beautifully.
The exhibition hall was brighter than I had anticipated so we built a tent out of material from taxi seats – thanks to Martin Cheung and Topaz Leung (notice that the main supports are photographic light stands), Amus Leung, Gladys and Janko.
I hung out by the tent and people came over to play with the projectors and ask about Hong Kong. Some curious people stayed and chatted for over an hour. One person said it was like the storyteller's tent they used to have at country fairs.
