designer builds huge hand sculpture as a stage for musical shows in shanghai

chinese artist jody xiong has created a huge poster of 12 by 23 meters — the girl in the poster has a three-dimensional sculpted arm that forms a large palm-shaped stage. musicians are invited to play music on that stage performing ‘handheld concerts’. the installation is an ad campaign promoting ‘rokid me’, a high-quality portable smart speaker that can be controlled from the palm of the hand.

 

 

 

the company has invited a diverse group of musicians to step onto the stage — their sounds range from deep and soothing cello to rap full of firepower, to the soft sweetness of traditional kunqu opera. this idea parallels the concept of ‘rokid me can be played in your palm every day.’ the project was held in big chinese cities including shanghai and hangzhou — millions of people watched concerts.
