​Opening Exhibition of WAVES: Crosscurrents of Art, Technology and Environment

Published on: 13-Aug-2018

You are cordially invited to the Opening Exhibition of WAVES : Crosscurrents of Art, Technology and Environment, 15th of August from 7pm - 9pm at Media Art Nexus NTU North Spine Plaza

A collaboration between emerging artists from the School of Art, Design & Media (Nanyang Technological University Singapore) and the School of Engineering & Digital Arts (University of Kent Canterbury, UK). Between 1st-23th August, WAVES will deliver two media architecture installations, one in Singapore at the Media Art Nexus NTU (MAN NTU) under the auspices of NTU Art & Heritage Museum, and one in the UK, at the Gulbenkian Media Façade (GMF) which is part of the Gulbenkian - the University of Kent’s Arts Centre. The selected artworks make use of digital technologies in the public sphere to connect people, culture and community across geographies, bridging the distance between the two continents. This cross-continental urban media project aims to build a sense of community beyond physical space, using art to develop global awareness and to support cross-cultural audiovisual exchanges. The selected artworks are juxtaposed through two themes, one that creates worlds of wonder and another that explores real-life environmental issues, such as the effects of plastic pollution in water.

Details of the session are as follows:
