The moving images and still pictures examine an interdisciplinary timeline. By exploring time, whether it is tangible, identifiable, or unpredictable, we approach the subject of time in our individual and collective ways. We throw ourselves passionately into the unknown future in every 1/30 or 1/24 seconds, the blending of the film frame produces an illusion of moving images, whether they are in low resolution or high resolution, these images reflect our very subconscious mind. These moving pictures are being displayed on our personal and collective timeline, the hour time change may have thrown many of us off our so called normal schedules. As our mind drifts slowly into the other time zones, a sudden image flashes across our hard disks. We see the dancing rhythm, we hear the time difference. The exhibition is a mind bending of Insomnia, an experience of time differences, and an art performance about shoving off into the unknown.

時差, 是在時間線上哪一端分差? 時好,住在哪個一時區?時間線可以是一把尺,用來量度畫面,由每三十份之一秒或廿四份之一秒的畫面開始,組成仿真的現實影像, 叫做錄映。我們從個人和連起來的畫面穿插, 看到顛倒時空的解像度,愈遠愈清晰,愈近愈迷糊,愈未來愈高清。記憶體在不停轉動著,聽出會跳舞的脈搏,看到有時差的節奏,在失眠和晝夜不分的空間閃動,打亂大家按時的規律, 讓我們漂流在多條時間線之間,擾亂彼此的意像。 這個電影藝術展覽把睡時彎曲,劃時交錯,有時差,有時好。

LAM, Miu Ling

About the Artist/Speaker:
LAM, Miu Ling is a media artist. She is currently an assistant professor in the School of Creative Media at CityU where she teaches coding for interactivity, physical computing and wearables, and directs the Wearable Innovation Lab. She is also leading a research group focuses on innovative 3D displays. She is an art advisor in Hong Kong Arts Development Council and a director of Videotage.

The Theme:
Wearable electronics are gradually governing the world. Whether it is a personal intelligent health monitoring strap or smartwatch, these portable electronic products will always measure the users and their surroundings. Videotage conceives new media art as a cultural movement that brings art and technology productions to nodes of intersections in the digital and network era. To promote a free and open DIY culture, this artist talk and workshop will introduce wearable technology concepts and technology development. In order to enhance participants’ interest to wearable technology, the artist will guide participants to sew ‘technology’ into their clothes.

About the Workshop:
What can you do with some LEDs and a needle? Soft Circuit! Creating WEARABLE electronic circuits by sewing with needles and threads is the craftiest and geekiest thing you can do. It is a unique way to engage diverse audience, especially female and young people, who are normally not tech-lovers to do interesting odd things with electronics. In this event, the artist will share her experience in crafting DIY sensors, actuators and wearable devices using non-traditional materials. She will also show participants how to create a wearable device that consists of programmable LEDs and can unveil hidden messages or patterns based on human's persistence-of-vision. All participants will receive a set of materials for FREE, which includes wearable microcontroller board, sewable LEDs, conductive thread, and battery.

To be prepared by participants:
• laptop computer
• a piece of garment that can be worn around the wrist (wrist sweatband/glove/mitten/sock/long-sleeve clothes/fabric wrist brace, etc)

INTRODUCTION (abstract):

…Become like water my friend.” – Bruce Lee

PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS ART FESTIVAL / video art, sound art, experimental film, music and architecture / is taking a place in unique settings of extreme remoteness of the island Papa Westray (aka Papay, or Papey in Meiri), and in the time of extreme winter weather conditions. The idea of the festival has originated from the ancient Papay tradition of The Night of The Gyros (or Gygr, Gryla, Grylur, Grøleks, Skeklers as its know in other Nordic countries), which till the beginning of 20s century was celebrated on the island in the first full moon of February. Against as reconstructing what is gone and almost forgotten, the Festival is a reflection on the folktale, the island’s landscape and heritage, as well as interpretation of tradition and ritual, through new developments in art and architecture. The Festival is a Research lab, learning hub and the place for a discussion about interaction between new media and ideas in relation to tradition, ritual and island’s landscape and heritage. During the Festival the Island is transformed into the art space and artworks are screened and exhibited in old farm buildings, boat house, workshops, ruins and open landscape.

PAPAY GYRO NIGHTS in HONG KONG is representing independent artist-run projects from Iceland, Finland, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Scotland and bringing to Hong Kong a unique selection of Video and Sound Art, Experimental Film and Music and also series of workshops and talks by philosopher, anthropologist and artists in residency.

Live Painting Performance
17 May 11am & 3pm

Absorption and Explosion, an exhibition on media and contemporary art which features two of the most promising Japanese artists of our time, Nobumasa Ikemori (Nobu) and Eiki Mori. Listed by Art Basel 2014 as a concurrent exhibition, Absorption and Explosion will run from 13th to 31st May.

Eiki Mori is an artist who has hosted over 20 exhibitions in major cities including Tokyo, Osaka, London, Taipei, Dusseldorf, Vienna, and San Giovanni Valdarno of Italy. His masterpieces include the reputed “Tokyo Boy Alone” and “Intimacy”, which brings superb sensitivity and novel appreciation to male portraits, has earned him the Ihei Kimura Prize, Japan’s top award for photographic art. On this occasion, Eiki has chosen the title “Hong Kong Obscura” for this exhibition, in which he will specially produce a new series of photos purely about Hong Kong, capturing the city’s energy, including portraits of people, streets, life and soul.

Educated in Japan and Spain, Nobu is winner of the 7th Hiroshima Art Prize (Japan) who has long impressed the international art arena with his large-scale drawings and constructed figures. He is also a creative live performer into dance and street happenings that inject the breath of art into the pulse of the general public. Nobu has chosen the title “Shin” (“belief”) for this exhibition, which will show his latest black ink paintings depicting the vitality of the human figure, animals, spirits and nature, giving a dynamic interpretation of living and life.

A major highlight will fall on 17 May (Saturday) when Nobu conducts two live painting sessions entitled “Burn! Okonomix”, held at 11 am and 3 pm at Cattle Depot Artist Village. Inspired by “Okonomiyaki”, a traditional dish from his hometown Hiroshima, Nobu’s recipe will include authentic ingredients for okonomiyaki which he will artistically blend with black into onto a vast canvas plate. To use his own words, Nobu will “make people alive, smile with super taste new vitality painting”.

Absorption and Explosion is organized by Zen Foto Gallery, Tokyo, Japan, in collaboration with Videotage, a Hong Kong-based non-profit organization dedicated to promoting video and media art.

展覽日期

表演
17 May (Sat) 11am & 3pm

來自日本藝術家池森暢昌和森榮喜的媒體藝術展《春光炸斂》將為五月的藝術盛會增光添彩。是次展覽亦是香港2014巴塞爾藝術節的同期活動。

森榮喜曾於世界二十幾個城市舉辦過展覽,如東京、大阪、倫敦、台北、 杜塞道夫、維也納和意大利的聖焦萬尼瓦爾達爾諾。他的著作包括《 Tokyo Boy Alone》和《親密》,其男性肖像作品呈現獨特而簡潔舒適的氛圍,後者更榮膺日本攝影藝術界的最高獎項“木村伊兵衛写真賞( Ihei Kimura Prize)”。森榮喜為此次展覽特別拍攝了一組與香港有關的作品,名為《香港黑房》。他希望透過人物肖像、街道、精神和物質生活來捕捉這座城市的律動。

另一位藝術家池森暢昌曾於日本和西班牙進修。他是第七屆日本廣島藝術獎( Hiroshima Art Prize )的得主。池森的大型繪畫和裝置作品享譽國際。他也用舞蹈或街頭偶發(street happenings)的表演形式,拉近藝術與普羅大眾的距離。這次展覽將展示池森的墨水繪畫新作《Shin(信念)》。作品所描繪的是富有生命力的人類、動物、精靈以及自然,表達了池森對於生命的熱情讚頌。

是次展覽還有一個特備節目,即池森的即場繪畫表演《燃燒吧!御好墨( Burn! Okonomix )》。池森的靈感來源於家鄉廣島市的傳統名菜“御好燒( Okonomiyaki)”。他用“御好燒”食材混合黑色墨水調製顏料,在一塊大型帆布上進行創作。用池森自己的話來說,他將“用極致美味而生動的繪畫讓人們感受到生命的喜悅”。

《春光炸斂》由日本東京的禪攝影主辦,由致力於錄像及媒體藝術推廣的香港非牟利機構錄映太奇協辦。

錄映太奇的FUSE駐場計劃將於12月13日開始舉辦Peter Alwast 的展覽《Looking Down》,藝術家將到臨12月13日的開幕酒會。他特別在香港創作了一系列以三維動畫結合錄像與繪畫的最新錄像裝置作品,以重覆、時間的停頓為主題;並探索高聳縱向的空間如何表達社會的組織和矛盾。

首次踏足香港的Alwast, 對於這片土地貧富之間彷彿以高度去反映有深刻的體會。他感受到富有的人與土地的距離最遠,而貧窮的人就像佔據和掌握了腳下的土地,兩者存在一道明顯的鴻溝。此外,他亦希望透過是次的藝術裝置表達時間任性而重覆的節奏:城市昏睡、甦醒、人們工作、回家--不斷重覆的生活令時間仿如停頓了。我們看似不斷地移動,但實際上並沒有任何真正的改變,直至有一天重覆的節奏被打破為止。

藝術家簡介

Peter Alwast是國際上屢獲殊榮的跨媒介藝術家,作品曾於澳洲及美國展出。Peter Alwast的創作運用不同媒介,包括錄像、電腦圖像、繪畫及素描。透過不同媒介的交替轉換, 錄像作品與畫作重疊成不同層次的再現,令現實與虛擬構成的空間得以互相交流。 Alwast善於利用烏托邦和浪漫主義式的圖像和文本構建充滿政治隱喻的空間。1999年,Peter Alwast獲得Samstag國際視覺藝術獎學金並於2001年於紐約Parsons設計學院完成碩士學位。此後,他的作品已相繼在國內外的不同場合展出。

〈連繫〉放映座談會/ "Connected" screening and discussion

互聯網的發展、智能手機的演進,以至社群網站的出現,通訊與資料儲存科技,把我們生活的一切都跨越時空地連結在一起。在這個背景下,錄映太奇把美國獨立紀錄片〈連繫〉(另譯為:愛的進化論) 帶來香港放映,電影探討的不止於現今科技網絡發達的現象,還有早在互聯網盛行之前,存在於人們之間各種看見與看不見的連繫。3月28日,錄映太奇將於牛棚藝術村13號室舉行〈連繫〉放映,映後更設有由中文大學教授Katrien Jacobs帶領的討論環節,歡迎各位加入參與〈連繫〉的討論!

Technology has been leaping multiple boundaries at rapid speeds. From the development of the internet, to the evolution of smart-phones, and even to the new emergence of social networks, and online storing technology, our everyday lives have been connected in a way that we may no longer truly understand.

Coming on 28th March, Videotage presents the independent documentary film "Connected". The film explores how the human connection has evolved following technological development.

The screening will take place in Videotage (Unit 13, Cattle Depot Artist Village, 63 Ma Tau Kok Road), after which it will be followed by a discussion led by Professor Katrien Jacobs. We welcome everyone to join in and be connected!

預告片/Trailer:

電影介紹:
由創辦威比獎(The Webby Award)到熱心支持全國離線日(The National Day of Unplugging),導演Tiffany對現今人與人互相聯繫又不可分割的關係可謂非常關注及敏感。2011年,導演的父親,一個腦科學者及手術家,患上了腦癌,而她自己亦有了高風險的懷孕,在這個其家庭出現巨大變化的一年,導演拍攝及製作了是次影片<連繫>,片中充滿感情豐富的家庭寫照,以及導演對連繫的重新反思。

導演參考了她父親對人類腦部的研究,並利用具象徵性的動畫及歷史片段,建構了一條人類文明發展的簡史,來探討早在互聯網盛行之前,存在於人們之間各種看見與看不見的連繫,箇中觸及到環境問題,消費主義,人口增長,科技發展,人權及環球經濟等重大議題。從導演個人的家庭生活,到其對連繫宏觀的探討與反思,片子說明了連繫的概念並不止於自己身邊所愛的人,而是像電影開始的引子--當你接觸任何一件單一的物件,你會發現它連繫著其他所有東西。

導演介紹:
Tiffany Shlain──曾獲報章譽為「其中一位有份塑造二十一世紀的女人」──是一位電影製作人,也是威比獎(The Webby Awards)的創辦者和科學及數位藝術學院(The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences)的創辦人之一。作為一個著名的思想家和驅動者,Tiffany能夠透過風格獨特的電影、多元的講座和新穎的設計,傳達有關文化、科學、科技、生命等複雜慨念。

Sypnosis:
With wonderful heart and an impressive sense of scale, Tiffany Shlain’s vibrant and insightful documentary, Conne cted, explores the visible and invisible connections linking major issues of our time—the environment, consumption, population growth, technology, human rights, the global economy—while searching for her place in the world during a transformative time in her life.
Employing a splendidly imaginative combination of animation and archival footage, plus several surprises, Shlain constructs a chronological tour of Western modernization through the work of her late father, Leonard Shlain, a surgeon and best-selling author of Art and Physics and The Alphabet Versus the Goddess. With humor and irony, the Shlain family life merges with philosophy to create both a personal portrait and a proposal for ways we can move forward as a civilization. Connected illuminates the beauty and tragedy of human endeavor while boldly championing the importance of personal connectedness for understanding and coping with today’s global conditions.

Director's biography:
Honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” Tiffany Shlain is a filmmaker, founder of The Webby Awards, and co-founder of The International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences. A celebrated thinker and catalyst, she’s known for her ability to illuminate complex ideas in culture, science, technology, and life through her unique films, dynamic talks, and innovative projects.
