2007 香港微波國際新媒體藝術節

Luminous Echo 2007

Microwave International New Media Arts Festival
Based in Hong Kong, the annual Microwave International New Media Arts Festival is a pioneering festival of its kind, both in Asia and internationally. Each year we strive to bring the latest fusion of art and technology to Hong Kong that would inspire both artists and public. The theme of this year’s 11th anniversary festival is “LUMINOUS ECHO” – an attempt to display works of public interest that explore the relationship between sound and light, with an emphasis to break down the barrier between man and machine, and heighten the interactivity between people and electronic media art. The Festival will run from 10 – 18 November 2007.

Luminous Echo is where light crosses paths with sound, appearing in all kinds of forms. The Festival curatorial team has invited 13 artists from all around the world, turning the City Hall exhibition hall into a luminous echo display room. Visitors can come forth to take part in as well as explore new experiences of these elements that are normally omnipresent in our city. Through the stimulation on visitors’ aural and visual senses from the artworks, they are driven to reexamine the city’s relationship with the self.

「形光譜」讓光影與會聲音,以各種不同型態展現人前。藝術節策展隊伍邀請來自世 界各地超過13位藝術家參展,將大會堂的展覽場地化身形光譜的陳列室,觀眾前來參與並探討一些本來在我城不停出現的元素所能產生的簇新互動經驗。透過空間 內的藝術作品,刺激觀眾的視覺聽覺,重新探討城市與自身之間的關係。
