"The need to be creative heralds the formation of a cellular community, energy moving energy about. It motivates and gathers inspiration, and the end result is an exterior reflection of interior goings-on, albeit abstracted or full of symbolism. Sometimes we forget that art is about energy; personal energy which differs with every individual who tries their hand at being an artist."
- Suraya Warden, curator of The Energy Trap -

Sporty Human Gloves

by Lisa Foo

This installation was created for the launch of Nike Sportswear (NSW) in conjunction with the 2008 Beijing Olympic. The eight icons of NSW were the inspiration for each art installation by eight Malaysian artists & designers incorporating elements of local context. Nike Sportswear Pop-Up Exhibition was held from 7-17 August 2008 at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

Icon: NSW T-shirt

I transformed the use of common rubber latex glove - Malaysian made product - by inflating it to mimic human forms in movement and wearing the logo of NSW T-shirt. The changing and multi-colour illumination was created to depict the multi-racial and colourful display of our Malaysian culture.
