Ting-Tong Chang, The Colosseum, 2016
Ting-Tong Chang (b.Taiwan) creates large-scale installations that look to analyze the relationship between science, technology and society. Chang’s process thrives on the tension between planned and random elements encountered through his live performances. For Media X Mumm, Chang uses time as a core component of a work titled The Colosseum; a durational installation, which will continue to evolve over the six day fair. Blindfolded when he enters the public space, Chang is confined to a prison-like structure for an average of 8 hours per day, as he draws a panorama of the world around him based only on second-hand imagery provided to him by another artist.
Nonotak Studio, Daydream V.3, 2014
Nonotak studio is the collaboration between the illustrator Noemi Schipfer and the architect musician Takami Nakamoto. Their work DAYDREAM is an audiovisual installation that generates space distortions. Relationship between space and time, accelerations, contractions, shifts and metamorphosis have been the lexical field of the project. This installation aimed at establishing a physical connection between the virtual space and the real space, blurring the limits and submerging the audience into a short detachment from reality.
Yves Netzhammer, Untitled, 2014
Yves Netzhammer (b.1970, Switzerland) works in a widely ramified, poetic image-cosmos. He is a pioneer for media art. His drawings, room installations, and computer-enhanced videos fascinate the viewer with their physical charisma and narrative style.
Dwi Setianto, Growth, 2016
Growth is a specially commissioned, site-specific installation extending 12 meters in length. The work comprises of ink drawings of varying sizes, including a ten-meter growth; drawings and installations of plant motifs on recycled paper; as well as vines, seeds and florescent lighting, all of which take on a life of their own within the walls of the fair.
The Container, 2014
The Container is a contemporary gallery in Nakameguro, Tokyo, and as the name suggests, the physical space is no more than a constructed shipping container. A replica of the experimental art space has been constructed within the harbourfront venue, to play host to four specially curated projects across the six day fair.
