Event Description

Similar to conceptual art in which the idea involved in the work takes precedence over material concerns, the FUSEBOX 08 event propositions that media art can also be practiced by putting new emphasis on the presentation of the idea, or concept behind media art through a reductionist approach, i.e. “unplugged media art”.

The concept of festival is thus reduced to a conceptual artwork that challenges the viewer to see the idea as artwork through the magnifying lens of the senses. The artworks presented still rely on the art object to make an impact, but remain in principal conceptual because they emphasize that the idea behind them is more important the scale of their presentation.

The common theme that therefore runs through all of the artworks selected for FUSEBOX 08 is the idea of ‘cultural transfer’, or how shifted identities can be traced back to cultural assimilation as it appears as an artefact in works of art. The exhibition therefore reveals a sympathetic stance toward Asian culture, which acts as a unifying rubric that creates a joint collective identity between both cultures.
