Description of 3 project
WHAT/ A time-split window replace of a real one in a small room. Through half the window the viewer can view the outside world in real time. Meanwhile, the other half the window has been altered to display a real view with a time lag, at times merely a fraction of a second delayed, at other times longer.
HOW/ The glasses of half the window are replaced by two LCD sreens and the moving images shown on them are captured by hiden cameras behind the screens which is being randomly invoked from its whole timeline.
WHY/ To interrupt|hack in the original narrative and reorganize them would create a new relationship among 'old materials'. What I like to do here is to make subtle change to the stuff that we are familiar with and somehow make a chance to take a different look at them.
A time-split window replaces a real one in a small room. Through the first half of the window, the viewer can view the outside world in real time. Meanwhile, the second half of the window has been altered to display a real view with a time lag - at times merely a fraction of a second delayed, at other times longer. The glasses of the second half are replaced by two LCD screens which randomly display moving images being captured by hidden cameras behind this window. This intervention and reorganisation of the original narrative creates a new perception of the relationship between time and space. In this way, I have made subtle changes to the surroundings that we are familiar with. This is a chance for the public to perceive reality in a different way by looking at a window.
Sound Light Body
Sound Light Body is an stage work with involvement of media technology. Moving images are projected onto the body of performer who is regarded as a container. Sound and images are responsive to the changing form of the container, which creates the tension of this work.
The movement of the performance is detected by an IR camera, then he can easily manipulate the image and sound by moving his body. He himslef merged in the sound-image and also be able to respond to the change of image and sound.
What interests me is that the content of the work is in a state of flux, which can be replaced or transformed contantly. For me, I only created the system to let it happen, and the result could be different each time when it is carried out.
Seeing clearly in darkness (participation)
WHAT /Seeing clearly in darkness is an non-vision theatre work, which includes two sections; the Black Box Lab and the display area.
HOW /The black box itself is an altered shipping container which is totally dark inside and equipped with audio system. Participants from public can easily access in to perform inside the Black Box Lab and the whole performance will be recorded by IR camera and then be showing on live in the display area.
WHY /On the one hand, darkness is a way to hide as well as to reveal. Being blind becomes the only rule inside the Black Box Lab. It indeed obstruct behaviors of normal people but it also inspiring and even make people get bolder. On the other hand, my interests in social involvement works makes me join this project. It demands participators, and somehow changed the relationship between artist and the participator, as well as among participators.
