A???PART: Episode 1

A???part, a bi-weekly online exhibition of new time-based work/media, will act as an opportunity to create and share new work in light of resource and creative constraints. We now present Episode One, featuring the work of Yu Ye and Ben Creech.

Submissions can serve as a response to the current state of social distancing/living in social isolation or can more broadly demonstrate how you may be adjusting or experimenting with your artistic practice at this time to cope with the current crisis. Of course, with limited access to SAIC’s campus, many students do not have the equipment or materials they are used to having during the semester. While we definitely understand the frustrating aspect of this limitation, we also see potential in the current limitations of access. We are hoping that the makers in our community can feel motivated, inspired, and challenged to channel their resourcefulness to be able to make work or just simply, vent.

Submissions can be anything from video diaries/confessionals, screen performances, phone camera or webcam films, internet appropriation, etc. We encourage you to work with any resources you may have at home and in a pinch.

Shenyang is so small

In this project, I want to discuss the relativity of space. The editing is basic on my childhood experience in a city village of China. A city village is referred to an area in a city but outside the urban planning which are relatively backward in urban development. The rough and shaky visual effects from the outdated DV camera are meant to a sense of reality from the noisy memory.
