Event Description

arebyte is very happy to present ‘The Choreography of Things’, an exhibition by the Singapore artist Choy Ka Fai, exploring the neurological narratives of our body and the things that condition us. The project investigates perceptions of movements and memories, inquiring into the paradigm of the mind and body with a pseudo-scientific aesthetic. The Trailer Show will present a series of studies on the act of choreography and the possibilities of a choreographic neural archive. ------------------------- The human brain is the single most fascinating and enigmatic organ of our body. It is also one of the most complex and ancient technologies we had yet to explore. Choreographers had always been intrigued by concept of the mind and the body. Many had explored this relationship through dance, text, emotions, sound and images. Some works were mesmerizing; while others were inherently abstract in the way they negotiated the complexity of our neurological paths. However, with today emerging technology, we are able to access our neural data easily with commercial devices. Artists are now able to hack into our own brainwave activities to create artistic hypothesis. These artistic hypotheses would generate an alternative ways of how we perceptualize brainwave data as a basis of experiment on our cognitive potential in relation with the idea of movement. ------------------------- Choy Ka Fai an artist, performance maker and speculative designer. He is inspired by the histories and theorizations that together contain the uncertainties of the future. His research springs from a desire to understand the conditioning of the human body, its intangible memories and the forces shaping its expressions. These factors converge into complex articulations at the intersection of art, design and technology. Choy Ka Fai an artist, performance maker and speculative designer.
