Sensitivity to Sensibility
Are you susceptible to changes in the environment, light, sound, temperature and emotions? If so, you might be a “highly sensitive person”. Being highly sensitive to his surroundings, multimedia artist Tam Kai-fung (L7-06) is endowed with keen observation and ingenuity. His treatment on skin allergy has inspired him to create installations in reaction to his body, turning allergen into creative stimulus, and scrutinising himself from a third-person perspective. Through art creation, Tam contemplates his relationship with the environment and society, and adjusts to the vicissitudes of life.
