Taoyuan Art x Technology Festival:Wonder of Art and Technology

Taoyuan Art x Technology Festival:Wonder of Art and Technology

Date:2019/10/15-2019/11/03
Venue: Taoyuan Arts Center

The 3rd Taoyuan Art x Technology Festival adopts the theme of “Wonder of Art and Technology" this year to explore the infinite possibilities and diverse development of contemporary art in the world of technology. The Festival hopes to guide the public’s imagination of art and technology through the wonders of technological media. When the collective wisdom of humanity is transformed into big data that isa already a necessity today, the seemingly cold technology has somehow become “human" because of art. Together, let’s discover how technology artists transcend perception and imagination dictated by technological media to reveal artistic wonders.

The exhibition is divided into four sections, which are “Wonder-Machine," “Wonder-Digital," “Wonder-lifeworld," and “Wonder-Performance." With an incredible range of media, including mechanical installation, interactive installation, sound, light, virtual reality and video documentation, the exhibition leads the audience into the new horizon of wonders informed by machines and technologies where virtuality and reality are integrated as an immersive whole to evoke our deepest inner desire for wonders.

Curators:Chen Yun-Ju, Lin Yu-Jie

The four exhibition areas

Wonder-Machine
Hybrid, cyborg and artificial intelligence have shaken and re-defined human life, morality, ethics, aesthetics and relations. Ideologies of artists are embodied through programs that operate machines while recording behaviors of participants, which generate new data to propel machines, forming absurd and grotesque Wonder-Machines. In the state of man-machine integration, are we operating the machines, or are the machines controlling us instead?

Artists:Chiang Chen-Wei, Hsu Yi-Chen, Wang Liang, Grinder-Man

Wonder-Digital
​Digital technology is now common and part of our daily life. Wonder-Digital refers to the era of total digital integration in human society, life, art and media. Wonder-Digital is made possible by digital native and has bridged and existed between virtuality and reality. It is no longer news that augmented reality reflects the digital virtuality in the real world. We are immersed in the sound, light, transparent scenes and immersive age of Wonder-Digital, which also foregrounds artists’ attempt to construct another dimension in search of authentic physical senses. However, what is authentic? At this moment, the definition has become blurry and fluid.

Artists: Takahiro Matsuo, Luo Xuanjiu, Lin Jiun-Shian, Tseng Yu-Chuan+Tseng Kung-Ta+Huang Yi-Ching

Wonder-Lifeworld
What happens when technology becomes autonomous and out of control? How can we control technology if we really can? We live in the era of Internet of Things when all things are always connected, and sensory systems are ubiquitous. Mobile phones, tables, mirrors, chairs and many other things have become “conscious” and “mind-reading.” In this section, we shall see how artists and designers construct and unfold the rhapsody of the future life and connect physical objects with virtual data through information capturing and communication technologies for a wide range of control, detection, and identification, satisfying our curiosity about a future world of imagination.

Artists:Ckfablab, Huang Chih-Chieh+Li Wuan-Chin, Lin Chih-An, Tseng Wei-Hao

Wonder-Performance
​The artists will engage the audience as part of their performances, converting performances into situation-based and immersive spatial installations while changing the role of the audience from simply being viewers into participants of their open texts. By releasing their dominance, the artists enable the audience to provide more organic responses and feedback, using interactive, participatory and immersive performance space to create Wonder-Performance and installation experience informed by fresh five senses. These interactive installations are performance stages, which are challenging and re-defining the audience’s conception of artworks.

Artists:JUBYCHIU+PSquare, Hu Chin-Hsiang+Tsai Bing-Hua, Chiang Chun-Yi+Wang Kuok-Pan+Zhan Jia-Hua, Penelope Cain, Marianne Jacquet


TAxT桃園科技藝術節-奇觀藝想

日期:2019/10/15-2019/11/03
地點:桃園展演中心

第三屆桃園科技藝術節以「奇觀藝想」為題,旨在挖掘出當代藝術在科技範疇中的無限可能與多元發展,以科技媒介的奇觀方式引領大眾對於科技的藝術想像。當人類集體智慧變成了大數據與必需品,看似冰冷的科技日常,卻因著藝術的介入而變得「人性」了起來,且看科技藝術家如何超越科技媒介所駕馭的感知與想像,再現藝術奇觀。

本次展覽透過四大展區:「奇觀機械」、「奇觀數位」、「奇觀生活」、「奇觀表演」。 以機械裝置、互動裝置、聲響、燈光、虛擬實境、影像文件紀錄等作品,引領大眾進入機械與科技、虛擬與真實沉浸融合的奇觀視域,召喚深藏在心中的奇觀慾望。

策展人:陳韻如、林羽婕
學術主持人:石瑞仁

四大展區

奇觀機械Wonder-Machine
混種(Hybrid)、賽博格(Cyborg)和人工智慧震撼與重新定義了人類的生活、道德、倫理、美感與關係。藝術家的意識形態體現在程式編碼中,操控著機械,同時又記錄著參與者的行為,重新驅動機械,形成一個既荒謬又怪誕的奇觀機械運作,在人機合體的狀態,究竟是我們操控機械?還是機械操控我們?

參展藝術家:江振維、許宜蓁、王量、GRINDER-MAN

奇觀數位 Wonder-Digital​
現今,數位科技已經很普遍,並成為一種日常。奇觀數位是數位完全融合浸入社會與生活、藝術與媒體的時代,奇觀數位的人們以數位原生(Digital Native)的方式誕生,早已穿梭與生存在虛實之間,而擴增實境將數位虛擬映射到現實世界已不再新奇,且我們正身處在這個聲、光、景全面透明且沉浸的奇觀數位世代,這也凸顯藝術家試圖建構另一個空間維度尋找真實的身體感知,然而,何為真實?此刻變得模糊且流動著。

參展藝術家:松尾高弘、羅玄九(錢泓霖/徐振邦)、林俊賢、曾鈺涓x曾功達x黃怡靜

奇觀生活 Wonder-Lifeworld
當科技變得自主,脫離了控制?如果能控制,那又怎麼控制?我們生活在萬物皆可連網與無所不在的感應器系統的物聯網(Internet of Things)時代,這個時代,手機、桌子、鏡子、椅子等物品變得「有意識」且善解人意。看藝術家與設計師們如何建構與展開對於未來生活的狂想,如何透過資料擷取以及通訊能力,連結實體物件與虛擬數據,進行各類控制、偵測與識別,引領觀眾滿足對於未來世界想像的好奇心。

參展藝術家:林楚卿數位構築實驗室CKfablab、黃致傑x李婉菁、林芷安、曾偉豪

奇觀表演 Wonder-Performance
藝術家將觀眾參與作為表演形式的一部分,從表演轉向情境式與沉浸式空間裝置,帶領觀眾從單向觀看演出到開放文本的參與者,藝術家透過主導權的釋放,讓觀眾產生更多有機的回應與激盪,以互動式、參與式和沉浸式表演空間的形塑,創造出新五感的奇觀表演與裝置體驗。這些作品即是互動裝置,亦是表演舞台,正考驗著觀眾對於藝術作品的重新定位。

參展藝術家:JUBYCHIU x PSquare媒體實驗室、胡縉祥 x 蔡秉樺、Marianne Jacquet、江俊毅x黃國斌x詹嘉華、Penelope Cain
