About This Happened HK
This Happenedwas founded in 2007 by Chris O'Shea, Joel Gethin Lewis and Andreas Müller aiming to bring insight to audience for better innovative work in the future. And in 2009 LED artist Teddy Lo, founder of LENOVATION Andrew Pang, multi-discipline media artist and co-founder of Videotage Ellen Pau and new media artist/interactive web designer and director of pill & pillow Henry Chu brought This Happened to HK.
This Happened is a multi-functional event: it is educational as it raised public concern to interactive design and the creator’s effort is acknowledged; it is informational when students interested in pursuing this career will know all the inside stories of the industry; it is also communicational, as artists and designers are able to develop connections with audience and other professionals through This happened.
