The Bloom of
Water Lilies

Commissioned by 
UOB (United Overseas Bank)

The Bloom of Water Lilies is a newly commissioned interactive ink art installation by Hong Kong based artist Desmond Leung. The presentation interweaves traditional ink with contemporary digital technology, inviting the public to interact and create a continuum of shared mindful experiences.

Even as we are engulfed in the flux of the modern world, an era of shifts and changes, Leung reconsiders the spirit of ink art and the purpose of digital art in today’s society. The artist believes in the ability of art to transcend boundaries and reconnect people through the beauty and magic of the natural world.

The water lily is a symbol of inner peace, enlightenment, self-regeneration, rebirth and compassion in the midst of impermanence. Drawing on this motif, the installation consists of 12 digital display screens, arranged in the shape of the bloom. Set against a backdrop of a water lily pond, the installation enables the public to experience the life force and the rhyme of ink through virtual interactive art.
Their interactions will transform the on-screen imagery from bud to blossoming flower, developed from detailed drawings of water lilies by Leung and Carolyn Yim, student winner of the 2021 UOB Art in Ink Awards, who further refined her brush skills under Leung’s mentorship. The Bloom of Water Lilies enables mindful presence and observations of light and shadow over time.

Creating points of connection, the work represents the interconnectedness of all life forms, reminding us that in our essence, we humans are inextricably linked to each other and to Mother Nature. The Bloom of Water Lilies spreads messages of positivity and sustainability through a cultural lens, a reminder to bring beauty and kindness to every encounter.
