Artwork concept – “Respect – Without Limitation”
The sculpture design took inspiration from the unique characteristics of the Möbius strip: a form that has no definite edges, no definite boundaries. It symbolizes that love and respect among people should not be segregated by nationality, race, age, gender, language and geographic demarcation.
The artwork uses glass and mirror polished finish as the main material to create this powerful infinity symbol “∞”. Glass engraving technique is used to produce flows of text formed by the word “respect” presented in different languages in relation to the minority races in Hong Kong. The pattern wraps around the sculpture in a way that one cannot distinguish if it belongs to the outside or the inside surface. The uncanny nature of the sculpture allows viewers to wonder and query. It allows viewers to understand that respect should have no boundaries, no limitations.
