Students from the Faculty of Media Arts at LASALLE College of the Arts were at the ArtScience Museum on 3 March 2012 to showcase their projects as part of the ArtScience Revealed series showcase.
The showcase touched on a spectrum of themes, and among them were Aleph of Emotions, a project which mapped the emotional states of different cities using the public Twitter stream; The River, an installation with changing light and colour patterns based on recorded sounds of activities along the Singapore River; and Beam, an interactive showcase where visitors can interact with an invisible ‘object’
Students were present on site to share more information about their creations and explain their creative processes as well as facilitate visitors’ interaction with the projects.
Andreas Schlegel, a Faculty of Media Arts lecturer who helmed this event, says, “As always you have mixed feelings when showcasing your works, will visitors like, understand and appreciate your work? But the overall feedback for this event featuring the LASALLE Media Lab was overly positive. Visitors of all ages were keen on listening to what we had to say and how we were using technology as a tool for art making. “
“This is what you do in Art School? was a question that did pop up quite a few times, so I hope with this initiative we showed yet another expertise anchored within LASALLE.”
ArtScience Revealed is held at the ArtScience Museum on the first Sunday of each month and allows visitors unique access to cutting edge projects undertaken by different institutions across Singapore. Admission to the showcase is free.
