The 14th Factory was a monumental, multimedia, socially engaged art and documentary experience conceived by Hong Kong-based British artist, Simon Birch. Transforming three acres of an empty industrial warehouse and lot on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles into the city’s largest experiential art project, Birch and his creative collaborators created an ever-changing immersive environment of 14 interlinked spaces comprising video, installation, sculpture, paintings and performance.
Kwong guided the original design concept for the garden in the ‘Garlands’ installation. Her concept, a landscape based on moon topography that was made out of sod, consisted of a sloping boxed field of grass in the middle of the warehouse, divided by line of poppies, with swings alongside one of the long edges and sounds of chirping birds come from speakers.
Conceived as an artistic response to a world on the cusp of unprecedented change, The 14th Factory celebrated the human potential to adapt, create and collaborate and attracted over 100,000 visitors throughout its extended run.
