Distilling Senses Exhibition

Hong Kong Arts Centre
Posted by Gestalten—12/2013

From the printing press to the portable camcorder, artists have always harnessed new technologies to create works that stimulate senses and inspire minds. In recent years, much new technology are being created and consumed in Asia. How does this environment affect artists from the region?

Distilling Senses: A Journey through Art and Technology in Asian Contemporary Art, the Hong Kong Arts Centre’s 5th annual flagship exhibition, seeks to address this question by bringing together nine Asian artists. The exhibition explores how technology shapes art and how artists use technology to sharpen our senses and enhance understanding of our surroundings.

Curated by the renowned Japanese teamLab, a huge interactive installation with hundreds of balls floating in the air, entitled Homogenizing and Transforming World will be on display in the exhibition. When touched by people, the floating balls change color, produce sounds, and transmit the information to other floating balls close by.

Today, the internet has spread throughout the world. People act as the intermediary for information, and faster than light, the information spreads out eventually resulting in unification. All individuals can freely be the part of phenomenon, so that the world is transforming itself in an instant.

If you are in town, we invite you to experience the huge installation that creates the feeling of an unreal space. The exhibition is open until January 12, 2014.
