Tour 1 - ALiVE Site Visit (Please register to attend - cost: HK$100)
Limited Capacity seats available

Applied Laboratory of Interactive Visualization and Embodiment (ALiVE) is an interdisciplinary research initiative of the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. Situated at the Hong Kong Science Park, ALiVE is an incubator and innovations showcase for new forms of creativity at the cutting edge of digital media in society.   The tour provides opportunity to visit its pioneering technical infrastructure made up of unique display environments, production systems and computer graphics techniques, including:  
  • ECLoud: an interactive spatial browser for the re-discovery of personal cultural data based on the crowdsourced World War 1 archives of Europeana. It transforms linear browsing of web based information into an embodied experience.
  • iDOME: a novel hemispherical projection system that provides a fully immersive visualization experience for a small group of viewers.
  • LOOK UP: a series of digitally animated photographic installations making use of a hemispherical projection screen. These works presents fisheye photographs of a range of different ceiling architectures found in public, private, religious and secular buildings in different places. With their straight upwards view angle, these images are digitally processed and animated to create an anamorphic optical experience that gives viewers a strong sense of spatial presence and virtual movement within these buildings.
  • PLACE_Hampi: an embodied theatre of participation in the drama of Hindu mythology focused at the most significant archaeological, historical and sacred locations of the World Heritage site Vijayanagara (Hampi), South India. It is an interactive installation that projects 3D imagery onto a 9-meter diameter circular screen from a rotating platform that is controlled by one of the viewers. Enfolded in this interactive installation, viewers explore a virtual landscape of panoramic locations enlivened by animated mythological events that reveal intangible aspects of pilgrims active at the temple complex. Comprised of high resolution augmented stereoscopic panoramas and surrounded by a rich acoustic field, PLACE-Hampi articulates an unprecedented level of viewer co-presence in a narrative re-discovery of a cultural landscape.
  • ReACTOR: we will show two programmes “Double District”, directed and choreographed by Saburo Teshigawara, performed by Saburo Teshigawara and Rihoko Sato, and “UNMAKEABLELOVE”, adapted from Samuel Beckett’s narrative The Lost Ones, which is a virtual reality installation that the viewer can use physical torches as interfaces, walk around and peer into a community of computer generated people who are living in a severe state of physical and psychological entropy.

Workshop 4 - Use & Re-Use of Data: Part 1 - Digital Strategies in Museum / Part 2 - Transmedia: The Rebirth of Multimedia (Please register to attend - Full Day - HK$200)
How Collection Management Systems and Transmedia impact the Future of Museum  

The first of the core challenges, museums and archives have to face today is getting oversight and control, and an idea about the usefulness of the exponentially growing amount of digital data. The second core challenge is the defining of strategies for the use and re-use of the existing data in IT Systems like Collection Management Software. And the third one is how a museum can find a unique position as content provider and producer in the growing field of transmedia (formerly multimedia).  

In their full-day workshop Norbert Kanter and Harald Kraemer will give an overview about the current situation and show on several case studies where museums and archives are headed. This workshop will have two parts.  

In Part 1: 'Digital Strategies in Museums’ Norbert Kanter, international renown expert in Museum Informatics, will give an insight why museums need more than ever digital strategies. Furthermore he is explaining how the latest Collection Management Systems can support the use and re-use of different kind of data for different purposes.   

In Part 2 'Transmedia - the Rebirth of Multimedia’ Harald Kraemer, producer, director as well as critical observer of online and offline Multimedia applications for and in museums, introduces into the problems of archiving multimedia content and methods to analyse these masterpieces of interactive applied arts. Meanwhile Transmedia has taken over and interactive narrations as well as serious games become an progressive factor for a successful knowledge transfer of cultural heritage on multiple social media platforms. As guardians of authentic artefacts and the related informations and narrations, museums increasingly have the obligation to define strategies for their digital future. In this workshop the authors show and discuss some options.

Workshop 5 - Automated 3D Model Reconstruction (Please register to attend - HK$150.00)
Limited Capacity seats available

Photogrammetry is the traditional name given to the derivation of some 3D quantity derived solely on the basis of a collection of photographs. In recent years this has been an intensive area of research and the quality of the algorithms is reflected in this effort. The state of the art is currently that one can create high quality 3D models from a collection of photographs without a significant amount of domain knowledge, specialist hardware and software, or with the need to place markers in the scene and follow rigorous procedures.   This workshop is targeted at those who wonder if they could make use of 3D model reconstruction from photographs and would like a thorough introduction to the subject. It will discuss the theory, introduce the current software solutions/pipelines, make reference to camera and techniques that result in an optimal chance of successful reconstructions, and present some of the post processing requirements and tools. In short, the workshop will aim to provide a complete introduction to the subject. The emphasis will be towards creating 3D assets for gaming environments and for 3D capture of heritage objects, this later application will be the topic of most of the examples based upon the main application of this technology by the presenter.   Instructor: Paul Bourke - iVEC, The University of Western Australia

SCM Guest Lecture: Making Life History Buddhist Film

ABSTRACT:

Anthropologists study to understand cultural systems. This field of study contributes to a holistic view of culture as an educational process. Clifford Geertz introduced ‘art as a cultural system’ as a way to illustrate a guiding factor in defining ethnicity and collective human identity.

Yet, aesthetics works on a theoretical plane that is multi-dimensional for the understanding of cultural expressions in society evincing its self-worth, worldview, and human organization. Therefore, the study of aesthetics as applied to anthropology (the study of humans in terms of language, biology, prehistory/history, and culture) is a look at a system that permeates life in depth.

This is a revisit to my film productions (1.) in Sri Lanka for the visual documentation of the autobiography of a Sinhalese Buddhist headmonk; (2.) a joint project with Canadian filmmaker, Ms Anika Tokarchuk, for her final edit production of a Life as Cinema about the making of Phörpa (The Cup): an independent feature film by Dzongsar Khyentse Norbu Rinpoche and other Tibetan monks who are rekindling their Buddhist faith in India and in some cases returning to Tibet to film documentaries on their heritage; and (3.) in India with the “untouchable” people (dalit) to work on a biographical film on Dr B R Ambedkar who rekindled Buddhism to kick start a social transformation movement for human rights.

The objective of this presentation is to give orientation to the understanding of making life history Buddhist film in past and present contexts. I will look at filmmaking in the process of ethics and local support in visual anthropology as a production by, for, and with the people it’s intended to represent. My intention is to show how I have dealt with questions in making visual biographical accounts in specific research contexts using shared techniques for comprehending the individual in the matrix of society. The ethnographic films I have done to share are made in South Asia, related to Buddhism, philosophy, aesthetic systems, and life’s experience utilizing the cultural tools at hand for achieving social goals. The results are life imprints in new media.

Dinner at Chi Lin Nunnery, Diamond Hill (optional dinner, $220 per person)
Limited Capacity seats available

The social dinner at Chi Lin Nunnery is optional (i.e. not included in the registration fee). The vegetarian banquet dinner is HK$220 per person which will need to be paid by each attendee prior to the event.  Please note this is food only, drinks (water, fresh fruit juice, tea/coffee) are extra and will need to be paid on consumption at the venue.

Please contact Kristen Bowen (vsmm2014@gmail.com) to book a seat at this dinner.

We recommend you arrive early so you can look around the Chi Lin Nunnery buildings and gardens. It is one of the most beautiful and arrestingly built environments in Hong Kong, this large Buddhist complex, originally dating from the 1930s, and was rebuilt completely of wood (and not a single nail) in the style of the Tang dynasty in 1998. It is a serene place, with lotus ponds, immaculate bonsai tea plants and bougainvillea, and silent nuns delivering offerings of fruit and rice to Buddha and arhats (Buddhist disciples freed from the cycle of birth and death) or chanting behind intricately carved screens. The design (involving intricately interlocking sections of wood joined without a single nail) is intended to demonstrate the harmony of humans with nature. It’s pretty convincing – until you see the high-rises looming behind the complex.

You enter the complex through the Sam Mun , a series of ‘three gates’ representing the Buddhist precepts of compassion, wisdom and ‘skilful means’. The first courtyard, which contains the delightful Lotus Pond Garden , gives way to the Hall of Celestial Kings , with a large statue of the seated Buddha surrounded by the deities of the four cardinal points. Behind that is the main hall , containing a statue of the Sakyamuni Buddha flanked by two standing disciples and two seated bodhisattvas.

The nunnery is can be reached by taxi (10 minutes) or by MTR (3 stops and a short walk, 15-20 minutes), take exit C2 of Diamond Hill MTR station, walk through the Hollywood Plaza shopping centre and turn east on to Fung Tak Rd. The nunnery is only a five-minute walk away.

Title: Nonverbal 

Gabriel Lester’s lecture "Nonverbal" addresses the notion of language articulated through performance, video, sculpture and architecture. Departing from the proposition ”if a work of art has a body, it consequently must have a language, too”, the lecture address the notion of nonverbal communication in terms of artistic body-language.

In his lecture, Lester will focus on his body of work by representation the broad spectrum of his artworks, actions and inventions, while provoking ideas about how to read, how to act and how to relate.
