Animation + Comix = ANIMAMIX
Today, I went to experience one of the Animamix Biennale exhibits which was being featured at the City University of Hong Kong. Set to the theme of "This Slow. That Fast", this exhibit focused on pace and tempo in the visual arts. The experiential part was the most interesting thing about the works that were showcased. The entire exhibit was limited to a handful of artists, but it took about half an hour for me to go through.
Venue: Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre of City University
Address: Level 3 Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre, 18 Tat Hong Avenue, Kowloon Tong, Kowloon
Hours: 10 am - 5 pm
This exhibit is running until April 12, 2014.

Basically, this virtual book of hidden pictures, took me through an apartment or studio space. It was very cool to explore the apartment and find magnifying glasses, secret notes, flies, etc. There were 10 objects that were hidden, which was indicated by the bugs on the right side of the screen.
The headphones added to the experiential bit of this work. You could drown yourself in the environment...like hearing bug noises or a running shower.

This exhibit was really a great representation of the using technology as a medium for the visual arts. There are two more venues that are carrying the Animamix Biennale exhibits, if anyone is interested: Oi! (in Fortress Hill) and vA! (in Central).
