Jan 9:  Rooster Dragon or Mutant Turkey?

My latest Creative Experiment, just completed. Suggest a title, please. What does it look like to YOU?

Lamma-based friends suggested "Mutant Turkey", "Fucked-up Phoenix", "Phoenix Tripping", "Cock in a Feeding Frenzy", "Cuckoo Centurian" and "Dragon Rooster", my personal favourite. Lamma harbours quite an exotic, subtropical wildlife (Lamma Birds), but I haven't come across this creature yet, fortunately!

Deep AI's NeuralTalk program analysed this image as "a close up of a bunch of bananas". Artificial Intelligence has a long, long way to go....

Jan 7:  Balcony Garden of a 'Deep Dreamer'

No need to travel far to get fine photos when living in the Lamma jungle, here are a few photos, all taken in my Balcony Garden.

As usual, I couldn't resist to make a few "enhancements" via Google's Deep Dream Generator. Click to enlarge and view comments:

Hippeastrum "Hippie" flowers - Centipede - Stinkbug

Jan 6:  EMDs Are Banned!

It's been 3 months of publicity campaign against all these technically-illegal electric transportation devices, except for licensed disabled people. They're illegal everywhere - on roads, paths, pavement - except private, non-public premises and no licenses will be issued.

They've become widely used on Lamma as they're the only form of motorised public or private transport available, besides VVs, emergency and HK Electric vehicles. Police warnings have been issued but no enforcement so far.

But now the police seem intent on stepping up the enforcement soon on Lamma, like on the other Outlying Islands already, I've heard? I'm holding off on getting an electric bike myself... for the time being....

P.S. What caused this stepping-up of the formerly non-existing enforcement?

No photo description available.

What are YOUR FAVOURITE DISHES in Yung Shue Wan? Receiving a YSW restaurants mini-review, titled "Underwhelmed and Annoyed" from the Lamma-zine's "Official Court Glutton", I made my own personal shortlist of favourite dishes in YSW restaurants.
See the traditional Christmas special from Jing Jing Restaurant above, our own yearly indulgence.

What are yours and should be added to my list, titled "Overwhelmed and Delighted"?

Dec 29:  Solar Power System on Your Rooftop?

HK Electric will buy solar power generated on your rooftop, paying very high feed-in tariffs.

Installing solar cells on Lamma is done by several contractors, paid for and amortized over quite a few years by the rooftop owner.

Video interview with one of the first installations on Lamma. Scheme starting on Jan 1.

Dec 28:  Balcony Jungle

I've spent so much time and effort on transforming my fractal 3D images from our LazerArti joint exhibition in LAC (ending yesterday), picking up the resulting desktop calendars today. Do you want one @ HK$98 printing cost?

Now I'm returning to transforming my real-life photography into wildly colourful AI Deep Dreams, mixing my photos with my canvas paintings and other neural styles. Let me start small, views on and from my own Balcony Jungle.

My original photos and more Deep Dreams: https://deepdreamgenerator.com/u/lammagung/account

Dec 27:  Xmas Presents from Landlord/Lady

In all the years I've lived in HK - more than half of my life - we've never received an Xmas present from any landlord/lady, usually not even meeting them ever beyond contract-signing and moving in/out.

So imagine our surprise when our landlord&lady arrived yesterday from S.China, bearing gifts and even bringing along some handymen to install them for us and our downstairs neighbours.

A bottle of sparkling wine, motion sensor porch lights, additional metal fence surrounding the G/F patio, furniture for my Balcony Jungle (see above). As we've rented only a completely unfurnished flat, all these additional new and past freebies (bathroom & balcony furniture, staircase railings, mosquito screens and blinds on all windows, double curtains in the living room and, last but not least, a really fancy door) are most welcome, of course!

Thank you, great landlord & landlady!

Dec 24:  Fractal Baubles, Anyone?

If you still have some room on your Xmas tree, here are all my own fractal baubles (shown on LaserDiscs in the current LAZERARTI joint exhibition @ Lamma Art Collective, YSW).

You can print'em, cut'em out & decorate your tree with these unique, free baubles from Lamma Gung Art & Photography.

P.S. Wow, zero interest in getting my 2020 calendar at just printing cost (HK$134.40) so far, offering it here, in these 2 weeks pre-Christmas, despite being friended by 1,723 people!

Creating computer art is still an extreme minority pursuit, not really appreciated by 99%+ of the population, I'd guess?

But that won't stop me, after 40 years of doing it, I've become too stubborn to stop now as it's still too much fun to explore, discover, mutate & tweak while creating virtual worlds with digital means: http://Lamma.com.hk/L-G/

P.S. Dec 26. A friend reading my Facebook post about this "zero interest" took pity on me and ordered one, plus one more order from a friendly neighbour. Hooray!

Now if just somebody else might buy one of the 6 double-sided, signed LaserDiscs in our LazerArti group exhibition at HK$450, lasting till Thursday, Dec 31. Hint, hint!

Dec 4:  Carousel of Digital Obsolescence

Just my ancient, electric music CD carousel, as obsolete as the LaserDiscs - plus the multimedia HK CD-ROMs I produced last millennium - decorating the carousel.

I've assembled it for the LazerArti & Party exhibition, opening this Friday, Dec 6, 7:30pm in the LAMMA ART COLLECTIVE.

To view and handle the double-sided LaserDiscs on my "Carousel of Digital Obsolescence", plus artworks by ~30 other artists - the vast majority of them Lammaites - you'll have to attend the exhibition & party afterwards in person!

Running till end of the year, call or msg before visiting.
