梅丽莎(Melissa Carey)与悉尼Market City Shopping Centre合作,为迎接中国新年创造了一个名为“财富圈”的艺术装置。梅利莎(Melissa Carey)创作的这个艺术装置长8米,这个唯美的艺术装置能给大家带来祝福和好运。 “ Kau Cim”,“ Kau Chim”灵感来源于中国抽签算命的竹签,摇动签筒中的竹签,竹签就会自己跳出,然后对应求得竹签的签号找到相应的签诗,根据签诗的等级和内容预测吉凶祸福和处理事物的方向。这项艺术装置的创造使用了数百根算命棒为基础的手绘木材,被螺旋状悬挂在中空,从第二层看雕塑时,可以看到圆形结构,象征着和谐、平衡和好运。

Melissa Carey has partnered with Market City Shopping Centre in Sydney, Australia, to create an art installation for the Chinese New Year.

Melissa Carey has created an 8 metre art installation that is a modern representation of Chinese fortune sticks, which are used for good fortune. "Kau Cim", "Kau Chim" or Lottery poetry is a fortune telling practice that originated in China in which the querent (person asking the question) requests answers from a sacred oracle lot. By shaking the container with the fortune sticks, the first stick to fall out has the answer or fortune.

This art installation has been created using hundreds of hand-painted pieces of wood that reference Chinese fortune sticks.They have been suspended to create a helical spiral form. When viewing the sculpture from Level 2, the circle formation is visible, which symbolises harmony, balance and good fortune.
