KEITH LAM - One Day Social Sculpture

Scientific installation - Hong Kong

The idea of Social Sculpture comes from Joseph Beuys’ most famous quote, “Everyone is an artist”, and is based around the notion of creating sculptures out of society, in the process serving to reshape and remake our universe. “One Day Social Sculpture” extend the idea of “Social Sculpture” through an exploration of the notion that, through the internet, we are all artists. As a composite of the real and virtual worlds, it takes the daily contributions made by people to social networks, and then sculpts and shapes them into physical forms.
