A collaborative Virtual Reality project by Ella Raidel (Austria/Singapore) and Hyun-Suk Seo (South Korea) Saturday 26 March, Work-in-progress presentation, 2:00 – 6:00pm, Residencies Studios, NTU CCA Singapore, Blk 38 Malan Road, #01 – 07
The Insensible Cities is a collaborative cinematic Virtual Reality project by Ella Raidel and Hyun-Suk Seo based on the two artists’ ongoing research on the ways human senses interact with modernist architectural ideas in different Asian cultures. Incorporating elements of performance in the most advanced capacities of VR technology, The Insensible Cities results from the artists’ shared interest in addressing and challenging the ideological and historical frameworks that govern one’s origins and identities. Through the sensory documentation of the multiple layers of time, memory, perception, and ideas, The Insensible Cities is a unique VR experience that reintroduces, reinterprets, and restructures the changing dimensions of everyday life in Asia beyond the conventions of cinema and performing arts.
The Insensible Cities is supported by Arts Council Korea (ARKO) and International Arts Joint Fund Korea-Singapore International Exchange Program. NTU Cohass Arts and Humanities Research Grant, ADM School of Art, Design, and Media.
