Cinema has never stopped evolving. Scholars and researchers likewise continue to theorize what it means to keep moving images alive through critical experiments and curious hypothesis of cinema’s possible future. Gene Youngblood, in his book Expanded Cinema (1970), proposed artists should re-activate the audience and revitalize the spectator’s space, a call then echoed by various artists, including Nam June Paik, Stan Vanderbeek, Stephen Beck, Steina & Woody Vasulka and so on. Already in the 1960s, with the popularization of television broadcast technology, new artistic raw material streamed in, such as electronic signals and their transmission process, visual effects, scan lines and so on, which expanded the range of moving image experimentation beyond playing with celluloid, montage methods or light projection. The word “expanded” in “Expanded Cinema” emphasizes extending, especially the definition of moving images, relentless exploration of new territories and endless experimental actions alongside new tools or machines.

In our time, images are ubiquitous and imaging tools accessible to everyone. The Writing Machine Collective takes up Expanded Cinema as the 6th edition’s point of departure. Four media artists, Ng Tsz-kwan, Hector Rodriguez, Wong Chun-hoi and Yeung Ming-him (Hugo Yeung), each present their own “expansion” of contemporary digital moving images. The 3-month exhibition series shows not only their moving image works, but also the process of their research, the many questions asked, the technical solutions they tried out, and the conceptual landing they re-discovered. It will be a series of deep experiences.

隨著影像媒介的變化,不同時代的學者均有其實驗影像的理論,希望能為視像媒體開拓更多的可能性。Gene Youngblood(1970)發表 Expanded Cinema(膨脹電影) 的概念,著我們對投影和如何觀映作出翻新,尤其要「活化」觀映的場所;那時候,投影活動一時風行其道。六、七十年代,廣播技術開始普及化,作出呼應的創作者把「膨脹」的想法推及至電子影像技術,把訊號發送、視覺特效及掃描線等元素也帶入實驗中去討論,並將當代影像與傳統的菲林影片分隔開來。「膨脹」強調的是延伸 – 尤其對創作媒體的整體的定界有意義的打開、延展。「膨脹」、「延伸」、「延展」是不停止實驗的態度和活動。新科技、器具、機器的出現,就必然有再度的「膨脹」。

來到這個影像泛濫,製作技術普及的年代,文字機器創作集以「膨脹電影」為題去探索「膨脹」狀態的不同面向,邀請四位關注和理念有所不同的媒體藝術家。吳子昆羅海德王鎮海、楊鳴謙,各自編寫廿一世紀的影像研究,不單以展覽的形式發表;為期三個月的媒體藝術展覽系列,亦是藝術家實驗電影的行動研究,將會打開你對影像媒體的認知和想像。

Docent Workshop 導賞工作坊

The WMC_e6 Docent Workshop series takes students to the gallery’s backstage, meet the artists to learn about their creative processes, and eventually to co-write the guided tour together from different angles. Each student will be provided opportunities to deliver docent in the exhibition, to demonstrate their new knowledge by leading intriguing tours for the visitors.

《文字機器創作集第六輯》導賞工作坊將帶領學員走進展覽廳後台,學習作品操作,翻閱創作筆記,更會與藝術家會面分享創作過程,從多面向一同創作展覽導賞。學員其後更有機會於展覽實習,為觀眾傳達藝術家的研究創作理念,提供深度及趣味兼備的導賞團。
