The artists’ philosophical reflective journey.
How does sensitivity boost creativity?
The curiosity in conscious and unconscious mind was the motivation of conducting this research. This film Consciously Unconscious was a research-based film conducted through PaR (practice-as-research) which looked into the sensitivity and creativity of a group of artists in Hong Kong. The film presents a series of interviews with leading artists in Hong Kong through a fluid, interwoven narrative of images, insights and reflections that take us to the personal heart of creativity and its centrality in life. The essence of the research was presented through this film…however, the findings of the research is more than the essence expressed.…life is full of possibilities…
Here and Now ． Sensitivity ． Creativity
The Fringe Club exhibition is an extension of the journey which includes an exhibition, screenings and dialogue sessions. It is an in-depth look into the topic of sensitivity and creativity. At the same time, it is focused on here and now during the 17-day exhibition. What do people see, here and now at the present moment of Hong Kong? How do these influence their sensitivity and boost their creativity? Hopefully, a real communication may occur while conveying messages in various artforms and non-artform approaches when messages reach the audience’s different senses through interaction.
In this Fringe Club exhibition, it is aimed at exploring the possibility of art creation and appreciation as well as looking into the conscious and unconscious minds in Hong Kong.
