Leaf Becomes Flower When It Loves, 2019



“Leaf becomes flower when it loves” is a kinetic installation activated under different weather circumstances that trigger unexpected movement.   


Taking inspiration from the Art Deco elements and colours from the city, Pei-Chi is interested in the post/colonial history and how societies grows under a structure that wasn’t made for them, somehow leading to intricate and complex culture that is strange but extremely fascinating.


She adds a playful twist into the metal railings that can be found everywhere in the city, using interactive elements to catch people’s attention as well igniting people’s imagination enabling a kind of self-expression they never thought was possible, moreover the piece creates a sense of surprise in daily life that offers city dwellers “distraction” from the hustle and bustle for a little bit.
