Pluto MOK is a student from the School of Creative Media in City University of Hong Kong and a former resident from Hall 11. He is an aspiring ambitious student who has won many competitions and awards like the “HK Comic award” and “The Outstanding Art Student Award 2013”. Known for his “Plutonization,” he has recently created the winning design of the CityU Morgen City Solar Car with his team of the same name in January 2016.

“Since my school days, I had always dreamt of becoming a graphic designer and a car cartoonist. I started designing cartoons of cars since then. I participated in a lot of competitions in my Primary school and gained my skill on mechanical drawings and cartoon design.

Talking about the Morgen City Solar Car, it has been the biggest challenge ever thrown at me. The challenging part was to transform a ‘floating table’ into a running car that should look stunning in terms of appearance and performance. The whole experience began with working under pressure and time challenges.

With repeated steps of trial and error, improvement and a lot of efforts and creativity, I finally accomplished the transmission of the ‘flat unattractive table’ into a stunning Race-car like solar car. This whole experience has been a rollercoaster ride for me. I have witnessed the mutual involvement of people from three industries–racing, creative and car industry in the making of this solar car. This experience will stay with me forever and is one of the best ways to show that Hong Kong students can do anything in life, anything that the world would remain astounded and amazed.

I would like to thank the whole of CityU for giving me this wonderful opportunity and a touching experience, making me aspire to get involved in bigger and bigger projects over time.”

作為舍堂十一前宿生的莫梓諾,現就讀於香港城市大學創意媒體學院。他是一個有著自己理想和追求的學生,曾贏得許多比賽和獎項,比如「香港漫畫獎」和「2013傑出藝術學生獎」。他以自己提出的「Plutonization」理念著稱。最近在一月份,他參加了獲獎的城大太陽能車的設計,取名「源晟」。

「自從我讀書開始,我就一直希望成為一個平面和汽車拉花設計師。從那時我就開始設計汽車拉花草圖。在我小學的時候,我參加了許多比賽,同時也學到機械繪畫和草圖設計的知識。

講到『源晟』太陽能車,這是我面對過的最大的一個挑戰。最考驗能力的部分是將一張『會飛的桌子』變成一輛不僅會跑,而且還要外貌性能皆驚人的車輛。這整個經歷是在壓力和時間的限制下工作開始的。

反複試驗,改進,努力,創新,我終於實現了將這張『難看的漂浮桌子』改造成一輛看起來像跑車一樣酷的太陽能車。這次經歷就像是做過山車一樣大起大落。我見證了三種不同專業的人共同參與製造這輛太陽能車,其中包括賽車業、創意產業和汽車工業的專才。我會永遠記得這次經歷,而且這也是最好的方式說明香港學生有能力完成一切他們想做的事,完成一切讓世界驚訝的事。

我想謝謝城大給了我一個這麼難得的好機會,和一段感人的經驗,讓我渴望能夠加入一些更大的項目。」
