The exhibition of Austrian artist Alexandra Zedtwitz, deals with the topic of exploration.
It consists of two parts: a series of polaroids arranged in diptych compositions and a tableau vivant.
For the tableau vivant the artist collaborated with local Santi Gallery to create seven outfits made out of handwoven Lurik fabric.
Alexandra Zedtwitz is a designer and photographer.
Her pictures are soft and clear, asyndetic and calm.
Natural special effects, ephemeral and transitional situations framed in minimalist compositions and clean colours.
She describes an unaltered image between fiction and documentation. Her focus lies on instant film.
There is no negative, only a positive, which has physically been present at the depicted scene.
The material is strong. Between the layers the atmosphere is captured and every picture is unique.
It’s depth adds a mystic quality to the image.
Alexandra Zedtwitz lives and works in Vienna

SPATIAL | vision, imagination and reality
A drawing exhibition

What if the human eye doesn’t actually ever create a true image of what we see, instead generating an abstract version of physical reality?
This exhibition will present the relationship between vision, imagination and reality that sits at the cross-roads between science, psychology and art.

C6H12O6 + O2 for 22nd IFVA Festival

Proud to announce that the C6H12O6 + O2 Project by Irene Agrivina won the Silver Award on Media Art category at 22nd IFVA Festival, Hongkong.

C6H12O6+O2 uses the symbiotic relation between Azolla, a unique water fern, and Anabaena (Cyanobacteria). Cyanobacteria is the only species that can perform oxygen-generating photosynthesis and nitrogen fixation. The photosynthesis of Azolla and Anabaena generates useful products like biofertiliser. In the process, Azolla reduces the amount of carbon dioxide in atmosphere, helping to alleviate the threat of climate change.

Exhibition Period: 9-29/3, 12pm-8pm
Venue:  Pao Galleries, Hong Kong Arts Centre

The group of community visit our lab to exchange stories

Disability aids are been impressively innovated and manufactured and available in the market globally. Either in Indonesia or anywhere in the world, by orthopedic clinics or orthopedic industries. Although, many disability and mobility aids solutions are available, it would be another story if you can’t afford to buy it!

The unfortunate condition may lead and forces most of them to alternatively seek and wait for help. With the same needs and same rights to have access on disability aids, They seek the opportunity to elevate their luck by founding a community network to distribute any communication, news, or any medical help distributions. The spirit to have self effort and help among the member of the community inspires both of them and us to have future work and collaboration on “Hacking Disabilities”.

We present them about our lab facilities and our activities
