  • About the Artist Workshop

    This era is flooded with images whose power as a result is often dissolved. How can we fully release the power of images? This workshop starts out from textual criticism of history of dynamic images and explores the reconstruction, politics and possible power of the “invisible” images. Then it further investigates how found footages can break the shackles of western experimental films and step into contemporary art practice. The artist will guide the audience by indexing, in an attempt to outline a mind map structured by key words and images, exploring how the present and the past are interwoven.

    Discussion: Machine Image -- How to Utilize After Images to Inspire Imagination?

    The artist will lead the audience to explore the history of dynamic images and the prehistory of films so as to inspect the after images formed in the history. 

    23rd July 14:00-16:00

    Lecture: Found Footage

    This lecture will talk about that in the development of western avant-garde films, which art schools and campaigns does Found Footage follow and in which social historical backgrounds does it germinate. Further more, after breaking off from those historical settings, how can the practice of Found Footage survey and shed the stream of experimental films, return to our own historical experience and raise different questions to inspire abundant imagination? 

     

    24th July 14:00-16:00

    Practice: Making a Mind Map through Indexing

    The artist will take his creative project The Kris Project as an example to guide the participants to regard their individual memory, contemporary society and the history as a point of departure and index with key words as a clue so as to find various possibilities by connecting and expanding necessary elements.

  • About the Speaker

    Au Sow-Yee,born in 1978 in Malaysia and grew up there, she now lives and works in Taipei.

    Through hybrid forms that primarily involve videos, conceptual and installation art, Au Sow-Yee’s works explore and expand on how the moving image relates with the production of the moving image as well as larger questions of history, politics, and power. Au’s recent works focus on ways of liberating history from the influence of Cold War structures, and on re-envisioning the awareness of historial issues in Malaysia and regionally in Southeast Asia. Meanwhile, she also follows through with her interest in the mechanisms of image-making, creating live cinema performances  with mechanical film projectors.
