Coffee Ring Stain Portrait by Hong Yi

Inspired by the song of Jay Chaou, Malaysian artist Hong Yi decided to create a series of portraits using nothing but coffe stains on the bottom of a mug. The 26 year old artist drew inspiration for the portrait from one of the Chou’s songs “Secret”, whose opening lines is about lifting a coffee cup off the saucer. Hong Yi’s portrait consist of hundreds of individual coffee stain rings, many of them broken and imperfect like fallen autumn leaves, to form a whole portrait.

The Lullaby Factory

Lullaby Factory comprises an intricate labyrinth of metal listening pipes and gramophones that play out a selection of soothing melodies by composer and sound artist Jessica Curry. These sounds can be heard through height-level pipes near the hospital canteen, and via the hospital radio station.

Studio Weave architects Je Ahn and Maria Smith were inspired by the maze of drainage systems and pipes that already cover the numerous, enclosed walls of the hospital. Here, attention is drawn to this often overlooked space by creating a fantastical and interactive, “curious world (for hospital patients, visitors and staff) to peer onto.” The duo have re-used silver, bronze and gold-colored metal gauges and horns, recovered from the hospital’s former boiler house, to create an incredible audio installation that reaches nearly 10 floors in height.
