Intangible No More
BID AT DEN ON 27 FEBUARY 2015
Must music be intangible? What is the relationship between each note as the melody travels on? More importantly, how does music represent an individual's existence? Yarn was carefully wound around seven pegs, arranged to represent the scale in a round formation, showing how each note, like a soul, is intimately bound to the one before and after it. Like a score, the fibres of the yarn is the composer's will, weaving and connecting disparate lonely notes into a deeply personal refrain, reminding us fragile as the individual may be, every individual has a key role to play in the web of life.
About The Artist
As an artist, Shang developed an interest in bringing digital interactions beyond the screen and began exploring creating interactive installations with platforms such as Processing and OpenFrameworks. His first collaboration was with Steve Lawler aka Mojoko. Their work “Reactive Wall” was exhibited in the Singapore Art Museum in 2010 and Reykjavik Art Museum in 2014, and was well received publicly and critically. Shang went on to create other interactive pieces with Mojoko including “The Incredible Magical Expanding Room” which explored pitch detection and perspective illusions.
