A melding of art and technology, where the artificial constructs of art and science are brought down, taken apart and played with to create new possibilities of expression.
Brainwaves, Robots and the Flying Bicycle is a melding of art and technology, where the artificial constructs of art and science are brought down, taken apart and played with to create new possibilities of expression. Through a range of media, three up and coming artists – Susan Olij, Shih Yun Yeo and Rachel Law – bring a range of experimental works that defy traditional constraints of what it is to create art and to that offer a brief glimpse of illumination on a truth before it fades away.
This group exhibition offers different perspectives to the concept of Humanity, Art and Machine. Susan’s layered images of nebulous forms explores the inner workings of mind and spirit with a central motif of brainwaves and life forms inspiring her work while Shih-Yun’s utilizes non-traditional tools such as robots and remote control cars to create spontaneous paintings of unparalleled freedom and honesty. Rachel’s Flying Bicycle installation uses modern microcontrollers and sensors to create an experience of Sublime flight, a child’s daydream come to life.
Presented as a work-in-progress, the show is both playful and introspective with questions of art, science and humanity. The informal unmounted hanging, studio atmosphere and experimental nature of the work allow them to experience the exhibition as an ongoing conversation between the artists, the works and themselves.
