2020 NTT-TIFA Wang Lien-cheng The Scenery of Little Light



Suddenly, from all the green around you,

Something, you don't know what, has disappeared;

you feel it creeping closer to the window,

in total silence. From the nearby wood   - Before Summer Rain, Rainer Maria Rilke


WANG Lien-cheng the NTT Artist-in-Residence, and his co-creation partners’ new work leverages a combination of technology and body movement to explore various prospects of digital aesthetics and kinesics. To address human struggle, both human and robot are put on stage. As the former constantly struggles for balance under the influence of the latter, finding it increasingly harder to keep control, the entire system would reach an edge of extremes.
