art TALKS tech: Behind the Scenes

Freespace The Room

Overview

Free, behind-the-scenes student sessions exploring artistic creative processes in a media artwork lab setting

Description

This September, Freespace presents art TALKS tech – a participatory laboratory where young local artists revisit past works and conduct creative experiments with technology and art. The series is presented in collaboration with The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and includes two events: a new performance of Oo.ll.oO Against Alienation in Our New Normal by the TEA Student Ensemble (Allison Fong, Ian Tang, Yoyo Yau, current and former students of HKAPA’s School of Theatre and Entertainment Art), and revisited installations by multimedia artist Kenny Wong (10Hz) and sound artist Jacklam Ho (Straight Lines Extending, new title: fractal).

 

Before both events we are offering free, behind-the-scenes student sessions to give students the chance to explore artistic creative processes in a media artwork lab setting. The sessions have an open-studio format that allows students to engage with artists and observe the setting up, trialling and rehearsal process. Open discussions with artists and art TALKS tech facilitators offer insight into the creative process and inspiration behind the works. 

 

The sessions are designed for full-time students majoring in creative media, design or fine arts. You may participate in one or both of the sessions, each of which has two date options. Please specify your choice of session and date in your application.
