我的靈感來自於日光在石屎森林中的跳躍反射。
《瞇》是一件置於明亮空間中的機動光影裝置作品,由51面鏡子組成。 鏡子依據特定程式追蹤光源並將光線反射於觀眾的面上,令我們透過影像的搖晃對光線有新的認知。
《瞇》是日常經驗的一種抽象表達,令觀眾跳出慣常思維去感受和捕捉光線的種種存在狀態。每一天,當人群穿插在城市中,日光不停在高樓大廈之間跳躍。我們每一個步伐,都可以感受不停的動感,體驗光線不同的強度、圖案和紋理。這種變幻為我帶來靈感,讓我去體會光的不同屬性及它們與都市複雜的互動。《瞇》試圖以光線最原始的形態去帶出極多元化的視覺感知。

Abstract:
Inspirei-me em como a luz solar se move em torno de nossa floresta artificial.
“Squint” é uma instalação luminosa cinética que consiste em 49 espelhos que refletem luzes em um espaço iluminado. Os espelhos rastreiam e refletem luzes no rosto do público seguindo padrões compostos de movimento. Isso estende a percepção gerada, focando em como as luzes passam fisicamente através de nossos sentidos visuais, e combina com nossa percepção de imagens através da oscilação. “Squint”, que extrai diversas experiências cotidianas em uma abstração, faz com que o público expanda sua interpretação de luzes e imaginação percebida até uma experiência não linear.
“Squint” simula fontes de luz e intencionalmente as reflete nos rostos do público. A luz é projetada na galeria, um espaço claro e iluminado.
Todos os dias as pessoas movem-se dinamicamente pela cidade. A luz do sol reflete e oscila mesmo quando é indireta e está escondida atrás de artefatos. Enquanto nos locomovemos, experimentamos o movimento. Também estamos experimentando a mudança da intensidade de luz, de padrões e texturas visuais. As variedades de formas de luz inspiram o artista a explorar o potencial de texturas luminosas, escolher e classificar a complexidade combinada no espaço urbano. O artista transforma-os em uma experiência mínima de forma de luz, enquanto maximiza sua diversidade de percepção.
Biography:
Kenny Wong Chi-Chuen é um artista de mídia de Hong Kong. Concluiu seu bacharelado em mídia criativa na City University de Hong Kong em 2011. Wong recentemente foi premiado entre os Golden 15 no 3º International Emerging Artist Award. Ele enfatiza a arte e a pesquisa multidisciplinar para expressar a relação delicada entre experiências cotidianas e estímulos da percepção.
Wong interessa-se por explorar padrões visuais, estados alternativos de percepção, texturas sonoras e por apresentar obras de arte através da criação de novas experiências para o público como forma de interação. Ele colabora ativamente com outros artistas de mídia, de som e de teatro no papel de artista colaborador, designer multimídia, engenheiro/designer mecânico e pesquisador de arte.
Sua recente obra de arte e neurociência, “10Hz”, recebeu o Gold Award (categoria Mídia Interativa) no 16º Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards e foi exibida em diversas exposições. Sua obra de vídeo “Human Body” foi exibida em Hong Kong e na Coreia do Sul.

Abstract:
I was inspired by how the sunlight bounces around in our artificial forest.
“Squint” is a kinetic light installation consisting of 49 mirrors that reflect lights in a bright space. The mirrors track and reflect lights on audiences’ face with composed patterns of movements. It extends the generated perception by focusing on how lights pass across our visual senses physically, and combines with our perception of images through flickering. “Squint”, which extracts various daily experiences to an abstraction brings the audience to expand their interpretation of lights and perceived imagination into a non-linear experience.
“Squint” simulates light source and intentionally shines lights on audience’s faces. Bright light is projected in the gallery, a clean bright space.
Everyday people are dynamically moving around in the city. Sunlight reflects and flickers even when it is indirect and hidden behind the artifacts. While we are traveling, we are experiencing motion. We are also experiencing the shift of light intensity, visual patterns and textures. The varieties of light forms inspire the artist to explore the potential of light textures, select and sort out the combined complexity in urban space. The artist turns them into a minimal form of light experience, while maximizing its diversity of perception.

Kenny Wong Chi-Chuen is a Hong Kong media artist. He received his Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Creative Media from City University of Hong Kong in 2011. Wong´s recently awarded as the Golden 15 in the 3rd International Emerging Artist Award. He puts emphasis on art and multi-discipline research to express the delicate relationship between daily experiences and perceptual stimulations.
Wong is interested in exploring visual patterns, alternative perceptual states, sound textures and presenting work of art by creating new experience for audience as the form of interaction, he actively collaborates with other media artists, sound artists and theater performers as a role of collaborating artist, multimedia designer, mechanical engineer/designer and art researcher.
His recent neuroscience-art work “10Hz” received the Gold Award (Interactive Media Category) at the 16th Hong Kong Independent Short Film and Video Awards and was exhibited in various exhibitions. His video work “Human Body” has been exhibited across Hong Kong and Korea.

“Squint” contains an array of generative patterns controlled by custom software. 51 robotic multi-directional mirrors are controlled by computer vision. It tracks the location of the audiences, and generates different reflection and flicker motions. Other than binary flickering, “Squint” explores the possibilities of how lights pass across the eyes in a split of second that creates flicker effect, the volume of light in sequence, and triggers perception beyond light texture passing through our retina.
