About "The Missing Link"
Co-curated by composer Gaybird Leung and Vanissa Law, “The Missing Link” is inspired by the use of technology to apply two essential elements of music— timeliness and performative— into art forms that do not originally exist in time. To give these art forms a new perspective, and thereby inspiring new interdisciplinary art works.
The project includes three exhibitions with sound sculptures, dynamic installations and virtual reality installations as themes, a space-time twisting-space media performance, and six free open lectures n technology and art. One of the technical goals of this project is to develop a media synchronization system, and to explore ways to connect different media with technology. In addition to the two composers, the participating artists also include media artist Kenny Wong and architect Wyan Yeung.
