Hong Kong studio unveils message on global air quality at Wonderfruit Festival

Ceekayello, the first Hong Kong art-design studio officially awarded by Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand this year, is launching Haiijaii, a bamboo neon-light art installation about global air quality Haiijaii (meaning “breathe” in Thai) is a light installation fuelled by data of air quality index collected from various locations around the world.

The lights “breathe” according to the pureness of the air. Some will flicker, emulating people choking from pollution and some will pulse slowly, like steady inhalation and exhalation from a healthy atmosphere. The art installation is made out of recycled used and unwanted materials. Haiijaii aims to give a second life to the materials they use.

“In this modern single-usage era, we would like to restart the practice of giving a ‘second life’ to our once-loved items like bamboo woods, commercial neon signs and beach mats. These materials serve as visual stimulation for inspiring cohabitation in the world; the city, the forest and the beach, nourishing them, nourishing us,” Ceekayello said.

Traditional commercial use of neon light peaked in the 1950s, where it became the inspiration for a lot of futuristic sci-fi movies. With its downturn due to the rise of commercial LED neons and lightboxes as well as government regulations, neon became a declining and shrinking scene globally. However, in recent years, there has been an artistic revival to bring back the neon, as seen around the world in artworks, commercial spaces and signage. “We are reconstructing used and unwanted commercial neons, and giving them a new life in terms of visual shape and purpose. In Haiijaii, our art installation, each set with a neon piece would represent a country or region,” Ceekayello said.

The Wonderfruit Festival has become one of Asia’s biggest events. Known as the Asian “Burning Man”, it aims to be a celebration of art, music, food and ideas to catalyse positive impact on sustainability and lifestyle. In its sixth edition, Wonderfruit is being held from December 12 to 16 in Pattaya.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has teamed up with public and private partners, as well as communities along the Chao Phraya River for “Amazing Thailand Countdown 2020”, promised to be the grandest and most spectacular event in welcoming in the New Year.

Companies involved in organising the event include ICONSIAM, ICONSIAM Residence Corporation Limited, ICONSIAM Superlux Residence Corporation Limited along with main sponsors, True Corporation Public Company Limited and KasikornBank.

Designed under the concept “Seven Wonders of Blessings” and taking place on December 31 at River Park, ICONSIAM, on the banks of the historical Chao Phraya River, the event celebrates New Year’s Eve and welcomes the beginning of another year.

TAT governor Yuthasak Supasorn said:” It is one of the biggest events marking the end of the year and one which TAT organises every year in various destinations in Thailand to promote the travel industry, boost the economy and generate income during the festive period as a gift to the Thai people”.

This year TAT is hosting the celebrations in Bangkok and six other provinces: Ratchaburi, Chiang Rai, Phatthalung, Kalasin, Sa Kaeo, and Lopburi.

In Bangkok, TAT will collaborate with ICONSIAM as well as partners along both sides of the Chao Phraya River for the world-class celebration “Amazing Thailand Countdown 2020” on December 31 at River Park, ICONSIAM.

Supoj Chaiwatsirikul, Managing Director of ICONSIAM Company Limited, said the countdown event is part of ICONSIAM’s mission to make the historical Chao Phraya River known all over the world.

“To present the Chao Phraya river as a leading destination and a famous national landmark for the countdown to 2020, we are proud to be involved in the organisation of “Amazing Thailand Countdown 2019” with TAT and other partners under the concept ‘Seven Wonders of Blessings’ on December 31 at River Park, ICONSIAM.

“There will be dazzling lights along the river. To bring happiness to Thais and foreign tourists, we have lined up truly magnificent art and cultural performances. The highlight will be a fireworks show of Thai sticky rice – an sustainable and eco-friendly innovation from Japan. It will be set up along the river over 1,400 metres in length and expects more than one million viewers within 2 kilometers of the venue.

” Apart from the main venue at River Park, visitors can also watch the display on the 7th floor of ICONSIAM and from Chaloem Phrakiat Park, Sathorn Pier, Wat Suwan Pier, Royal Thai Marine Sub-Division 2, CAT Telecom’s Bangrak building, Klongsan Pier, Holy Rosary Church, Sampheng carpark, Charoenkrung Creative District, Lhong 1919, Asiatique The Riverfront, The Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, The Peninsula Bangkok, The Royal Orchid Sheraton, The Millennium Hilton Bangkok, and The Shangri-La Bangkok,” Supoj said.

The magnificent fireworks are broken down into seven acts on the concept of “Seven Wonders of Blessings”, all illustrating the rich heritage of Thai history, the kingdom’s prosperity, the nation, religion, monarchy, and the agricultural abundance due to the expanse of water, as well as paying respect to the royal institution that has overseen the happiness of the people for a long time. All Seven Acts have auspicious meanings.

1st – The Glory: begins with golden showers of fireworks representing the glorious victory over the land and water and telling the world that this is the golden land blessed by the reigns of Thai Kings until the present time.

2nd – Health Giving: wishes the King a long life. The fireworks blast up into the sky and expand like a big tree spreading out its branches. This represents the loving kindness of His Majesty the King towards Thai people.

3rd – Way up High: points to the moral glorification of the religion. The fireworks that light up the sky can be compared to the enlightenment that leads the way to a peaceful life.

4th – Joy to the World: felicity and peace. Colourful fireworks in thin and big lines spread through the sky with joy of happiness, representing the contentment of people at leading a happy life in this peaceful land.

5th – Diamond in the Sky: wealth and the national resource called Suvarnabhumi – the land of abundance. The fireworks are like diamond flashes that scatter over the sky, resembling seeds that have been spread and will soon grow.

6th – Lucky Star: fortune and harmony. Small and large fireworks in various colours light up the sky on the New Year’s Eve and welcome the New Year as if bringing an auspicious blessing to the Thai people as well as their everlasting happiness.

7th – Power of Love: divinity to protect the country. The red fireworks represent the power of love, care, and protection that will prevent the water from allowing evil to step on land.

Public and private organisations, including the Marine Department and the Chao Phraya Express Boat Ltd, will provide services, various modes of transport and other facilities for visitors.

Chareonkrung Creative District, Sino Port Ltd (Lhong 1919), Asiatique The Riverfront Bangkok, and hotels along both sides of the Chao Phraya River will also organise countdown activities.

The area along Chao Phraya river will be filled with beautiful decorative lights throughout the festive New Year’s Eve and New Year celebration.
