二百萬人一人一毫!製作「香港民主女神像」 Your Support Needed for The Fight for Democracy in Hong Kong – Production of The “Lady Liberty Hong Kong”

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Why?

由2019年6月「反送中」運動開始,香港成為新的民主震央。面對頑固冷漠的專政、國際社會日益關注、民主運動進入持久戰,香港需要一個具象徵意義、能夠代表我們對民主理想一直堅持的雕像,用以團結港人、震懾反民主人士、國際宣傳、振奮士氣、記念義士,及連繫手足的作用。

Since June 2019, Hong Kong has become the epicentre in the struggle for democracy. Under the shadow of an ignorant autocracy, soaring international attention, our democratic movement becoming a war of attrition, a symbol that represents our pursuit of democracy is necessary to unite the movement. A statue seems to be the perfect medium to cohere Hongkongers, awe the anti-democratic forces, draw global attention, pay homage to those who have made sacrifices, and unite local democratic fighters.

The IDEA

2019年8月11日,是警方在各區肆無忌憚地選擇性執法、使用過度暴力鎮壓示威者的黑暗日子。有證據指,一位前線女救護員被警方以布袋彈近距離狙擊右眼致盲。諷刺地,反民主人士反而誣衊少女是被示威者以不可能擊破眼罩的彈珠所傷。

整件事的發展,如同這三個月的縮影,倒映著當權者的虛偽和荒謬。

那天起,爆眼少女的犧牲成為了香港人不畏強權打壓、不懼誣衊抹黑、奮力抗爭爭取民主的象徵。民主抗爭者以紗布或手矇上右眼,以此為記,銘記少女的傷痛、暴政的壓迫、反民主勢力的可怕,互相提醒我們犧牲,以及尚未達成的民主理想。

因此我們以爆眼少女為藍本,製作「香港民主女神」像。

11 August 2019 was a day of terror. When police brutality and selective law enforcement happened extensively on the day, what stands out is a female volunteer medic was blinded after being shot by HK Police. Evidence point towards the only possible explanation: HK Police was purposefully aiming towards her head from a close distance, and ruptured her eyeball with a Bean Bag shot fired from a shotgun. Since then, the anti-democratic lackeys has been attempting to defame democratic fighters, claiming the injury was caused by protestors with a slingshot, which was proofed physically not possible to penetrate the 3M goggles the volunteer medic was wearing.

This tip of the iceberg parallels what happened in recent months, reflecting the deceptiveness and ridiculousness of those reigning over Hong Kong.

Since then, the volunteer medic has been known as “The Lady who was blinded by police gunshot”, and has become a figure braveness against the suppression and defamation Hongkongers face during their fight for democracy. Hongkongers cover their right eye as a gesture, to remember tyrannic oppression we face, the terror caused by anti-democratic forces, and to remind each other of our sacrifices during our unsatisfied cry for democracy.

This is why “Lady Liberty Hong Kong” is heavily influenced by the brave volunteer medic.

Who are We?

我們是一眾來自連登、熱愛藝術及設計的香港市民,團隊成員全屬自發及義務性質,絕不會透過製作「香港民主女神」有關項目賺取任何酬勞。

We are a group of art and design enthusiasts from all walks of life, recruited through the LIHKG forum, all members of the team are volunteers and will not receive any remuneration from the production of The “Lady Liberty Hong Kong” project.

What’s the Plan?

經集思廣益後,我們擬於本月31號豎立「香港民主女神」像 (Lady Liberty HK),全高4米,製作期為27號至30號,地點待定。

目前進度:
1. 根據8月24日於連登舉行投票之結果,我們將採用5號設計,並根據意見作出了少許修改。 (投票頁面:https://lihkg.com/thread/1502026/page/1?post=1)
2. 3D設計圖已經完成,正在處理作3D打印。由於時間緊逼,用3D打印女神全身不可行,我們商量後決定頭部、手部等細節位置用3D打印製作,身體其餘部分則用傳統方法製作。

加工過程略述:
1. (已完成) 設計新民主女神3D模型
2. (26-29/8) 將頭部、手掌等分割成不同尺寸並分發給具3D打印機之手足日夜打印
3. (26-29/8) 焊接身體骨架
4. (28-30/8) 製作發泡膠身體及軀幹
5. (30/8) 收集及組裝頭部、手及其他部分作最後加工,包括粘合、打磨、表面處理、內籠強化等
6. (31/8) 運抵展示場地,組裝並展示


Drawing from collective wisdom, we are planning to build a 4-metre-tall statue of “Lady Liberty Hong Kong” on 31/8, and exhibit at a location to be decided.

Current progress:

  1. Based on a poll on LIHKG on 24/8, design No.5 was selected. We made minor adjustments based on opinions collected from the forum and within the team.
  2. The 3D model has been completed and 3D printing is already underway. Within the very pressing timeframe, printing the entire body of the statue with 3D printers is not a viable option. After some discussion, we have decided to 3D print the intricate parts of the model, including the head and hands, while other parts of the body will be produced with conventional methods by volunteering craftsmen.

Brief process description:

  1. (Done) Design of 3D prototype
  2. (26-29/8) Divide and designate different parts to team members with access to 3D Printers.
  3. (26-29/8) Combine body skeleton
  4. (28-30/8) Produce Styrofoam body and arms
  5. (30/8) Gather the head, hands and other parts for the final process, including adhesion, polishing, surface retouch, structure reinforcement, etc.
  6. (31/8) Transport the statue to the demonstration, assemble on-site of exhibition

How will we spend the raised fund?

因製作所需物資、物流運輸、印刷品等均需支出,且知道很多人希望在支持香港的民主運動上盡一分力、作出貢獻,我們決定以眾籌方式籌集資金,以支付上述費用。

快閃雕塑:可能製作成30厘米至2米高。並非指雕塑快閃,而是放置後便不會取回,所以其實是搬運者需要快閃。計劃會製造複數較小的神像,放在具有意義的地方,例如政府總部外、中聯辦外、博物館等。由於時間關係詳情會之後決定。

如籌得超額款項,我們將與其他民主抗爭者一同考慮是否用作製作多於一個女神像,並再訂明其設計,以作為後備或更廣泛展示之用。無論如何,是次眾籌之餘額,將全數捐贈予612人道支援基金。

如眾籌不足夠主雕塑部份,將會全數退款。如主雕塑部份足夠,只有快閃雕塑部份籌款不足,則會執行主雕塑部份並將剩餘資金捐出。

資金用途:
1. 3D打印 … HKD $22,500
2. 身體、軀幹、底座 … HKD $15,000
3. 表面塗裝 … HKD $7,500
4. 骨架 … HKD $7,500
5. 外聘焊接工 … HKD $7,500
6. 物流費用 … HKD $7,500
7. 印刷及雜費 … HKD $7,500
8. 模具(用20次)... HKD $7,500 (快閃雕塑
9. 訂造旋轉鐵架方便倒模 ... HKD $5,000 (快閃雕塑
10. 重新倒模(20次)... HKD $40,000 (快閃雕塑
11. 運輸 ... HKD $20,000 (快閃雕塑
12. 拍攝預算 ... HKD $10,000
13. 事後Storage(6個月) … HKD $36,000
14. 平台手續費 ... HKD 10,000

總額: ... HKD $200,000

以上預算為製作各部分所需耗材,以及與之相關的交通費等支出,屬粗略估計;

31/8為「香港民主女神」首次嘗試展出,但「香港民主女神」項目並非當日完結(除非林鄭忽然答應5大訴求)。我地預計會有更多後續行動,包括聯絡機構提供永久展示場地、製作迷你民主女神像等。較充裕資金可以俾到我地更多發揮空間。最後再次強調,是次眾籌所得資金,每分每毫均會用於新民主女神及相關之必要支出,若團隊因為任何原因停止運作,所有剩餘資金會捐贈612人道支援基金。

Through crowdfunding, we are hoping to cover the cost of the project, including production, logistics, promotion, etc.

Flash Statues: We want to produce multiple statues, standing between 30cm to 200cm tall each, and install them in various locations with a flash mob-style transportation and installation team. We plan to produce around 20 Flash Statues and place them at symbolic locations, for instance, outside the Hong Kong Government HQ, the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government and maybe even install them in museums. But because of the tight schedule, we are focusing on completing the main statue, we will provide all updates after we have discussed and decided the details of the Flash Statues at a later date.

All excess funds will be donated to “612 Humanitarian Relief Fund” to help cover the legal fees of arrested democratic fighters.

If we could not raise enough funds for the main statue and have to cancel the project, all donations will be refunded to all donors.

If we raised enough funds for the main statute, and the remaining funds are not enough to cover the cost of Flash Statutes, remaining funds will be donated to “612 Humanitarian Relief Fund” to help cover the legal fees of arrested democratic fighters.

Breakdown of the Use of Fund:

1. 3D printing … HKD $22,500
2. Body, Arms & Base … HKD $15,000
3. Surface painting … HKD $7,500
4. Skeleton … HKD $7,500
5. External adhesion … HKD $7,500
6. Logistics … HKD $7,500
7. Printing and miscellaneous … HKD $7,500
8. Mold (to be resued for 20 times) ... HKD $7,500 (Flash Statues
9. Rotational Frame for moulding ... HKD $5,000 (Flash Statues
10. Remold(20 times)... HKD $40,000 (Flash Statues
11. Logistics ... HKD $20,000 (Flash Statues
12. Photo shooting ... HKD $10,000
13. After-storage(6 months) … HKD $36,000
14. Platform fee ... HKD 10,000

Target: ... HKD $200,000

Items 1-7 of the above budget are the estimated production cost of the main statue, accounting for all required materials, labour and logistics costs.

Items 8-14 are funds reserved for producing the Flash Statues. Though the first public exhibition will be on 31/8, the “Lady Liberty Hong Kong” Project will continue to operate with more projects in the pipeline, such as the production of Flash Statues and permanent exhibitions of the main statue.
