Film academic’s work showcased at international new media arts festival

電影學者作品於國際新媒體藝術節展出

Mr. Kit Hung, Lecturer of the Academy of Film of the School of Communication, was invited by the Microwave International New Media Arts Festival (Hong Kong) to produce a work for its Project Room Exhibition on the theme “Looking at the Big Sky”. Fourteen video artists from Germany and Hong Kong were selected to produce work on the theme.

Hong Kong is a concrete jungle with high-rise buildings everywhere. Polluted air is trapped in the city, noise from traffic bounces back and forth. The sky is usually a narrow gap between buildings. Mr. Hung’s work Breath is an experiment in trying to put into context the “concrete”, noise, and nature. It seeks to remind people about the quality of life in the city. The work was recently shown at the Hong Kong Film Archive.

Microwave International New Media Arts Festival was launched in 1996. It has developed into the only art festival in Hong Kong dedicated to new media art. 

傳理學院電影學院講師洪榮傑先生獲微波國際新媒體藝術節邀請,為「實驗F場」製作以「天茫茫」為主題的錄像。他是十四位挑選德國和香港錄像藝術家之一,以同一主題作,展示兩種觀看天空的方式。 

香港是一個石屎森林」,到處都是高樓大廈污濁的空氣和交通噪音被困城內天空通常只是建築物之間的一條狹窄縫隙。洪先生的作品「吸」是一個實驗,嘗試將石屎」、噪音和大自然放在一起,提醒大家城市的生活質素作品於早前在香港電影資料館展出。 

微波國際新媒體藝術節始於一九九六年,現已發展為本港唯一專為新媒體而設的藝術節。
