Pre-Exhibition for Memories Factory

Update on 22 Feb 2013

Hi dear backers,

YAY, Happy Year of Snake!
It’s been a while since I last updated all of you. First of all, I have to thank you for all your understanding upon my delivery extension and again for your ongoing support throughout the process. Now, all bookmarks and wood stick necklaces are finished and I'll be sending them out by the end of February.

And I have also finished 2 custom-upgraded products while others are still work in progress.

My work in progress custom-upgraded products

Now, there is a chance for you to have a look at my finished products, as well as those semi-finished ones. There will be a Pre-Exhibition for Memories Factory held on this coming Sunday (24th Feb). I'm going to display all my products there, including all kinds of Memories Factory rewards, both the finished and the semi-finished ones. It is an event organized by Jup Yeah and I am sure it will be a great fun, as it provides people with a place to swap with others and give their old passions a new life while there is refreshment provided. Meanwhile, there will be sharing sessions and a DJ will play music at the venue. So come and join me at my sharing session at 3pm on 24th Feb! (Please see below for Pre-Exhibition details.)

Meanwhile, I am looking for a suitable venue to hold my first exhibition and I am also looking for more 1.35L bottle and wood sticks, as to have all your rewards finished. Thanks again for your ongoing support, and wish all of you a Happy 2013!

Pre-Exhibition Details as follow:
Date: 24th February, 2013 (Sunday)

人生每個階段總有值得回味的事...當回憶似被淡忘時, 原來我們還可以這樣把昨天帶回今天.
Upcycle your lost Memories . Upgrade your useless items.

  • Q: I don’t live in Hong Kong and I have no way to drop my old things off to you, so can I still back this project?
    Yes! Your support is more than welcome even if you don’t have any old things to share or you have no way to give me your old things, in which case you can simply back me and I will still deliver your rewards to you internationally.
    Q: Can I give you any kind of old things?
    Sure, pretty much everything and anything apart from old things sized bigger than 1 cubic metre. No matter what kind of old things I receive from you, I am going to repurpose and upgrade them with your own story and my creativity. If you want to upcycle your old things and see how creative I can be, just simply confirm me with a location where I can go to pick your old things up and share your story in person.
    Q: Can I give you more than one old product?
    Unfortunately you can only give me one old thing each time you back me but, of course, you can back me as many times as you want. I am more than happy to have your support because that means a lot to me. However, with every single old thing that you give me, you need to share the story behind that particular old product with me, so that I can make a new design with value added by your story and my creativity.
    Q: Will I know how my old things look like before displaying them in your exhibition after you have upcycled them?
    Don’t worry. I will regularly keep you updated with my working progress on every product on this project page on FringeBacker. In addition, I will privately send you photos of the finished products once I have finished upcycling your old products.
