At Play - responsive audio-visual installation
presented at ISEA 2016
Preview reception: Mon. 16th May, 5pm - 7pm
Exhibition 17th - 22nd May, 9am - 9pm
Academic 3, City University of Hong Kong
outside upper level of Wong Cheung Lo Hui Yuet Hall & Room 6214, 6th/Floor
Presented in March 10th - 8th April 2016, Angewandte Innovation Lab (AIL), Vienna, Austria.
At Play is a responsive audio-visual environment that invites visitors to make stacking combinations with plastic storage bins to build the architectural landscape of the installation. Miniature versions of containers that carry goods to world markets, these everyday objects, are playfully moved around by visitors to the exhibition like pieces of an interactive puzzle that has political undertones.
Diver (in progress)
Diver blends the human and technical presence, explores the materiality of media in real time, and offers a participative multi-sensorial experience of a hybrid reality. It deals with systems of control and the human body as a metaphor of that control, with human-machine autonomy, and with the notion of authorship. Capture by the machine, and the analysis and choreography of the data are part of this process.
Premiere: Nov. 25th 2015, Théâtre La Chapelle, Montreal, Canada
In this performance, bodies and objects act as extensions but also as limits, tools, or constraints towards each other. Between soft and hard bodies, between flesh and shell, role-play, sculptural compositions, and poetic evocations operate, intermixing childhood and the wandering of a globalized world in search of reinvention.
