As a main attraction of Art Central 2016 that will return to the Central Harbourfront 23-26 March 2016, artist Elaine Ng will present her renowned new media work Sundew that brings textiles, electronics, bio-mimicry, interiors and installations together to Hong Kong.

Originally commissioned by Swarovski to develop a piece for Design Miami, Ng, founder of The Fabrick Lab and a visionary multi-media artist  will expand the installation from the original three pieces to five pieces for Art Central. By emulating a sundew plant that attracts and kills its prey, the fixture will bring a very unique and multi-sensory experience. It moves in response to sound and movement, and has two scents.
