Uncertain Future, New Media Art  Games

is an educational art project, based on a series of discussions and games, which takes the development of new media art in China as its research target. The project will last for one year, one edition per month.

New Media Art in China started when Chinese artists incorporated DV technology into their works. The discipline took a different evolutionary track from that in the west.  The project tries to present the current research on the discipline and its development since it was introduced as an “imported art” in China. The guest speakers will share their insight as to nma’s future advancement and influence on Chinese society, culture, and lifestyle. .

The project encompasses monthly lectures and workshops (interactive games) to be held between April 2009 through December 2009. Each lecture and workshop will be presented by guest lecturers from different fields such as contemporary art, music, dance, architecture, engineering, science. The project is envisioned as an experimental field where the audience’s exposure to the lecturers will  enable them to further their own inquiry into the uncertain future of new media art.


The 2nd edition of "Uncertain Future" will be held on May 23 and 24, 2009, at the same venue.
May 23, Victoria Vesna, the new media artist from the US also UCLA New Media Art & Architecture Institute professor will share with us her new research and projects on "Sound + Science";
May 24, Chinese media artist Yan Jun will interpret the theme of "Old media art and Music".
Welcome to join us!

Sound + Science: Vibrations of Metamorphosis
By Victoria Vesna

Nano is not only making the invisible visible but also changing our way of relating to "silence" or making the in-audible audible. With all the noise of chattering technologies and minds, we propose the interactivity to be stillness for in this empty space of nano we can get in touch with the magic of continuous change.
This workshop will center on sound vibrations from natural systems both metaphoric and actual applied in three artworks that seek to create an experience though immersive, vibrational interactive environments: Mood Swings, Cell Ghosts and Blue Morph. Through these works, I will argue that amplified inaudible vibrations are critical in media arts explorations.

Victoria Vesna, Media artist, Professor at the department of Design | Media Arts at the UCLA School of the Arts, Director of the UCLA Art | Sci center and the UC Digital Arts Research Network and holds a joint appointment at the New School / Parsons in New York.

May 24th (Sun.)
