Connective Fibre: Installation Documentation
DOCUMENTATION OF ART INSTALLATION ORIGINALLY SHOWN AT SINGAPORE ART WEEK 2022
Connective fibre is a collaborative piece by visual artists Amanda Tan (@em.pyreal) and Pat Shiu (@patshiu) that explores their 25 year-old, cross-continental friendship.
This work is presented through familiar communication devices, which now more than ever, serves as a means to human connection. Images weave in and out, transcending individual screens.
Amanda and Pat look at the nature of highly-mediated, deep connections, exploring the malleability of their memories, even in the wake of inevitable digital trails. Adrift in the vast ocean of modern life, what tethers them together? How do gestures, notions and moments, exchanged as optical signals across literal oceanic divides, become the beacons that mark the space of this friendship?
Through footage taken over a span of 14 days, the pair documented moments in which they wished each other were present in their respective countries. Moving images were then filtered to create a visual reverie, coming back to the spirit of simple image making during their teenage years — using readily available tools, and an off-the-cuff, improvisational approach to return to the joy of making.
With Amanda’s skillset in filmmaking and Pat’s expertise in creative coding, the work blends two different artforms to create an expression and tapestry of love, connection and friendship.
Glitches of You - Projection Mapping at Singapore Night Fest 2022
ORIGINALLY PROJECTED ON THE STAMFORD CLOCK TOWER FOR SG NIGHT FEST 2022
Glitches of You explores the notion of a multicultural, modern identity in a dance of glitch and fractured pixels. The artwork takes you on a journey through a broken social landscape and allows the past to meet the present in a visual clash of manipulated archival material meshed together with filmed live action.
HappyAF - Video for Happy House at Singapore Art Week 2022
HappyAF - VIDEO INSTALLATION PIECE AT HAPPY HOUSE, SAW 2023
HappyAF is a visual mosh up of vintage ads, original footage and textures to create a commentary on the commodity of happiness. The artist rejects toxic positivity in this sarcastic and tongue in cheek portrayal of "happiness".
She answers the questions;
Can we make it more colorful?
Can we put in more smiles?
Can we make it more positive?
Can we make it more exciting?
Artcade: Play with Soul - Exhibition
ORIGNALLY AN ONLINE EXHIBITION ON THE ARTCADE WORLD PLATFORMS
Play With Soul is a collaborative project by electronic music producer and sound designer Intriguant and visual artist Amanda Tan.
They have selected 4 different themes based on the layers of the human psyche; Desire, Denial, Adoration, and Grief.
With these selected themes, they explore the nuances of sounds, both natural and synthetic. They have a strong belief that sound can evoke instinctive responsiveness in the viewer when paired with emotive visuals.
Different vignettes each feature a soundtrack and a set of looping, perpetual moving images that encapsulate each facet of the soul.
By exploring how virtual and physical imagery inform habits, they look at materials, interactions, and data from social media and internet use, together with the pain, joy, and cyclicity of daily life to inform the artwork.
Watch this space as we begin the next artistic journey that is PLAY WITH SOUL.
