Digital Break: New Perspectives on Taiwanese Moving Image
Presented alongside Wu Chi-Yu’s exhibition Reading List, this screening brings together a varied collection of film and video by some of Taiwan’s cutting edge artists working with moving image and creative technology. The selected works collectively explore what happens when we take a step back from full-on digital exposure, shedding light on our relationship with the organic, ‘physical’ world.
