Shi Jun Ng is a local designer and art director. We somehow stumbled upon her work while poking around the Cargo website and found a sculpture she did that fuses together 3D technology, sculpture, and bike and street culture together for something eye catching and useful. The piece is her Graffiti Sculpture and we’re very fascinated by it as there is something so simple and beautiful to it.
The concept of the piece is to emphasis bike racks and to “serve as a stylized, kinetic ‘sign’ to draw attention to the bike racks, to indicate their purpose and use, if never encountered/seen before.” The piece was built in Cinema 4D (progress/process pictures above, in the modeling stages), where Jun perfected bringing this 2D graffiti scribble into the third dimension. Aside from the piece bringing graffiti off of the wall, it looks so interesting: the movement of color from a splotchy magenta to a cerulean is beautiful and, paired with the flow of the letters into each other, creates a sophisticated and futuristic answer to the question, “Where do I put my bike?” It’s great. I really would not mind seeing these all of town, announcing where bike racks are (which would be a big help to aimless bikers like myself).
