A Floating “Spider Web” Reminds Passengers of Cycle of Nature

Passengers interchanging at the upper platform of MTR Lai King Station can now look skyward to see a beautiful floating ring-shaped spider web made with a wire frame and translucent sheeting. Entitled “Cosmos”, the eye-catching display reflecting the magnificent beauty of the cycles of nature was unveiled 26 August as the latest installment in the “Art in Station Architecture” programme.

 “Cosmos” was originally created by talented 64-year-old Japanese artist Ms Naomi Kobayashi using washi paper and paper thread. The artwork on display at Lai King Station is an enlarged copy of the original creation. Even though it is predominantly made of metal, the piece retains the light-weighted feel of paper.

A giant ring-shaped spider web, “Cosmos”, now hangs from the ceiling of the upper platform at MTR Lai King Station as the latest installation under the “Art in Station Architecture” programme. MTR passengers are able to appreciate the spider web story of nature’s cycle through the man-made artwork.
