“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” ― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass

The exhibition explores the connections between art of pattern and literature.

Group exhibition: 14 short experimental animations, 3 interactive installations, 2016

Based around the theme of The City, the works examine the built environment at varying levels; from the microscopic and intangible, to the grandiose and abstract. Done in collaboration between the students of NTU ADM, IEM and in Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine the artworks employs a variety of techniques ranging from digital animation, generative art, as welt as interactive data-driven pieces that were developed using Processing, the Unity game-engine and Touch Designer.

In this project, 168 ADM Foundation students are asked to pick four movie quotes from various movies that they have watched over the years. The challenge was to create a visual narrative that expresses each quote using only symbols, pictograms, dingbats (ornaments), icons and engravings as vizual vocabulary. Students manipulated, altered and deconstructed the found graphic imagery to transcend its original meaning through the creation of the indicated narratives. In order to reinterpret such preconceived associations, they had to think laterally and use narrative techniques such as hyperbole (exaggeration), metaphor, caricature, parody, anthropomorphism, etc., to create new interpretations that are visually engaging and meaningful.

Supernatural is series of over 140 digital paintings done by the art students from the School of Art, Design and Media class Pattern, Art, Design and Architecture. Students created series of motifs inspired by various themes, from Chinese Traditional Storytelling (2013,14), Nature and Darwinism (2015), and Daydreaming (2016). For the occasion of Media Art Nexus NTU the two dimensional compositions are reanimated using experimental realtime animation into playful puzzles with unpredictable and abstract pattern variations. In collaboration with NTU Museum original artworks were exhibited as large scale textile banners (3,6 m X 0.4m) Pavilion at Tan Chin Tuan Lecture Theatre at NTU in 2015 as well as projected on a facade of the building for the occasion of the Aliwal Arts Night Crawl 2015 . The works premiered at the Ars Electronica Festival in 2016.

The Emote Project (Animation, 50 minutes, 12 chapters, 2017) is about feelings, brain waves and real-time experimental animation, Using EEG the brain signals were recorded and analyzed for recognizing emotional patterns and used for generating 20 animated chapters in real time after the non-lyrical music clips of the known emotional class (such as happy, sad, exciting, scary, etc) provided by Computer Science and Engineering Team. Animation by Mark Chavez, Giant Monster Collaborator Ina Conradi, Nanyang Technological University Singapore
The project is done in collaboration with Quek Hiok Chai (Assoc Prof) School of Computer Science and Engineering Dilip Kumar Prasad (Dr), Nanyang Technological University Singapore.
