Event Description:

Sammy Chien (AD of Chimerik 似不像) will be leading a creative sharing session revolving the theme of intergenerational dialogue, decolonization, spirituality, interdisciplinary arts and new media technology. Sammy will share the research and story behind their current project Ritual-Spective 迴融--an experimental media arts project with his father, an elder Taiwanese immigrant artist Jackson Chien 簡志雄, as a way to empower immigrant identity and values of familyhood in diaspora/non-Eurocentric cultures, from the lens of an immigrant artist child, as a ritual to honour our past/predecessor in relation to the here and now. We will share some of the process, behind the scene, the demo of the technology and host community discussions.
