G.O.D. would like to invite deTour 2016 attendees to participate in this interactive collage inspired by the “tong lau” – tenement buildings built in the late 19th century to the 1960s in Hong Kong – where residents ingeniously constructed metal extensions to their cramped living spaces.
On a smaller scale, come and decorate your very own illustrated “tong lau” unit with the materials provided and put it next to your neighbours’ designs. Watch as the very same patchwork takes form with each new piece of artwork added to the panels. The same way that personalisation of “tong lau” units results in a beautiful network that expresses individuality, you too can contribute some of your own artistic talent to deTour 2016.
