The Memory of Tomorrow – Returned
R4MBLER由四位香港漫畫家組成，成員包括：葉偉青Felix Ip、謝森龍異Sam Tse、姜智傑Keung Chi Kit及蘇頌文Pen So。R4MBLER可解讀為漫遊者，意思是我們四人在不同領域、時空及角度遊走，並把所見所聞用畫筆紀錄下來。
在2019年, R4MBLER舉辦了「The Memory of Tomorrow 」首次畫展，展覽再次於山頂廣場展出，並與GoArty合作，延續這段時空旅程。展覽主題由生活和環境出發，創造出獨立但相互緊扣的科幻世界，並讓觀眾穿梭時空，遊走四個不同的未來世界、「香港重機 空想未來 」、「 機械身體 」、「 頭盔 Helmet 」及「移動城寨 逃離城市 」，並從畫作中探討漫畫家們對未來科技的展望和想像。然而展覽中亦想表達在未來科幻世界發展下，仍會保留一些香港舊式景物和特色，這些物件及形象看似落後，理應被淘汰，卻仍然有其欣賞價值，提醒觀眾切勿忘本。
四人希望舉辦以「 Cyber Meets Nature」為題的第二次展覽。
The four of us, like ramblers venture into different territories exceeding space, time and dimension. Reminiscing our explorations, these illustrations are the visualized creative reflections of our journey. R4MBLER includes four Hong Kong comics artists, Felix Ip, Sam Tse, Keung Chi Kit and Pen So.
In 2019, R4MBLER organized their first exhibition “The Memory of Tomorrow”. The exhibition has been returned and will extend the time-travel journey. R4MBLER collaborates with GoArty and showcasing the artworks at Peak Galleria. The exhibition shows four different world views nspired by daily life and environment. Through the artworks, audiences can travel four future worlds, “Hong Kong Machines - Envisioning the Futures”, “Cybernetic Body”, “Helmet” and “Mobile Fortress – city Escape” exploring the prospects and imaginations of future technology by the artists. Under the future development, some old Hong Kong sceneries and features seem to be backward but still being retained. Since these elements are still worth to be appreciated, it is hope that the exhibition could remind the audience about their roots.

In the future, the world belongs to virtual reality. Our VR helmets immerse us in virtual reality, teleporting us to a new dimension where nothing is impossible.
Here, dreams are fultfilled, desires satisfied and creations realized. Savouring the past, we envision the possibilities of the future, totally indulged in the pleasure of this ultimate perfect world.
The concept of “Helmet” was come from the huge and glamorous VR helmets. In the future (actually the present as well), human beings are indulged in social network, virtual world and electronic entertainment etc. and all the new technology. It seems like the head is being protected by covering their eyes with the helmets, but in fact, people would rather stay in the electronic world than the reality.

Mobile Fortress – City Escape
In our perpetual quest for better living, people embrace technological advancements, which radically change our lives, making it so much more comfortable and convenient. The Hong Kong I venture in is a city where people indulge in new technology and pop culture. Yet, little did they realize how these changes have posed far-reaching impacts on our tradition, heritage and historical culture.
In the heart of Hong Kong stands a cluster of century-old tong lau (tenement buildings), which people call “Walled City”. Having a unique nature and complex background it survived demolition but most people consider it a disgrace to the image of modern Hong Kong.
A testimony to Hong Kong’s architectural heritage and its bygone era, the residents of the Walled City refuse the fate of its demolition, so standing firm and united, they fight against all odds to preserve it. Thanks to exclusive technology, which has transformed the Walled city into a mobile compound moving far away from the dangers of the place I have known so well, “His” legacy prevails.

Despite the phenomenal development of advanced technology in this cyber age, the humble fate of Humankind to go through the “Four Sufferings” – birth, age, sick and death is inevitable. Yet, in my journey into future, our relentless efforts to improve our lives shed new light on this unattainable wish. Supported by innovative technology, we are implanted with cybernetic body parts to challenge the basic law of life. Cyborgs are no longer science-fiction.
There seems to be no right or wrong on these fantasies and who knows? In my journey, the only certain thing is, there will always be a vision, and where there is imagination there is boundless possibilities.
