四色春光


「《春光乍洩》的官方海報是用傳統的柯式印刷製成。其中一道工序是通過分色技術將色彩分成4個原色。青、紅、黃、黑。我是學設計出身的,對印刷有一定感情,喜歡收集與印刷相關的物件;字粒、電版以及分色片。澤東大部分的電影海報,如果是我們自己設計的,相關的電版、分色片,我都會保存起來。Tino Kwan 是香港的燈光設計大師,也是我的師兄。今次是我們第一次合作,目的是通過今天的燈光技術,將一點春光,分成四色……」

Happy Together Diptych


"The poster of HAPPY TOGETHER was printed with traditional offset printing technique, which broke down color printing into cyan, magenta, yellow, and key (black). Because of my background in graphic design, I have always taken a keen interest in the design and printing of our posters. Over the years, I have collected different devices used in the printing process, such as movable types, printing plates and output films.

 

Happy Together Diptych is my first collaboration with Tino Kwan, who is not only the leading lighting designer in Hong Kong today, but also my senior at the Polytechnic University. This installation projects the original output films in the traditional split of CMYK, but from the perspective of Tino’s modern lighting approach, multiplying the original visuals across a spectrum of colors, mediums and time."


— Wong Kar Wai




Happy Together Diptych is a crossover between Wong Kar Wai and world-renowned lighting designer Tino Kwan. The artwork is created with the poster output films of HAPPY TOGETHER.


The set of four black and transparent output films were originally created for the traditional four-colour printing process of Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. To create this installation, Kwan fitted the output films between custom-built acrylic sheets and installed edge lighting within the frames of this work. The acrylic sheets were ink drawn and hand engraved by Kwan himself. The work is an interpretation of the classic visuals of HAPPY TOGETHER with Kwan's signature lighting across colours and mediums.
