An exploration of place and atmosphere through sight and sound, merging the talents of two creatives into one unique project, with Hong Kong as their backdrop.
When Melbourne-based photographer Nicole Reed and her partner, musician/producer Leigh Ryan (aka ‘Plutonic Lab’) combined their talents to work on a creative project, the result was ‘Fieldnotes – Hong Kong’, a collectable photo book and limited-edition vinyl, then translated into a stunning exhibition in the lobby of Liberty Place in Sydney’s CBD.
Fuelled by their love of travel, the pair explored Hong Kong through audio and visual mediums, with Reed behind the lens, and Plutonic making recordings by her side.
The exhibition allowed viewers to experience the intrigue of small moments with big impact including the image of an empty beach, the sounds of a Kowloon taxi, and the sight of a lone woman and her dog on a bridge at night.
The exhibition featured over 25 of Reed’s photographs, with an accompanying sound track from Plutonic, making it a truly immersive and multidisciplinary experience that catalogued one of the most vibrant cities on earth.
‘Fieldnotes – Hong Kong’ was presented by Liberty Place, and curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery (an initiative of Wiltshire + Dimas Management).
