On the Edge – New Media & Hybrid Arts from Australia
锋芒无限,点到即止——来自澳大利亚的新媒体与混合艺术

Initiated and managed by Catherine Croll as part of:

Imagine Australia – 想象澳大利亚

The Year of Australian Culture in China, titled Imagine Australia, provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase the work of some of Australia’s very best young artists

澳大利亚文化年,今天的命题是“想象澳大利亚”,给我们提供了一个绝佳的机会来展示澳大利亚最优秀的年轻艺术家的作品。

On the Edge – 锋芒无限-点到即止

Brought Australia’s very best new media artists, musicians, digital animators, film makers, robics experts, electronic specialists and laser lighting designers to collaborate with young Chinese new media artists during a series of skills development workshops followed by interactive public performances to be held in Beijing, Chengdu and Chongqing

让澳大利亚最好的新媒体艺术家,音乐家,数字动画制作人,电影制片人,有氧运动专家,电子设备专家和激光照明设计师和中国年轻的新媒体艺术家合作,开展一系列技能发展研讨会,并将在北京,成都和重庆进行互动公开演出

All of the On the Edge tour members have been selected because of their history of working with others to explore new methods of creating interactive art and extensive experience in community collaboration, mentoring of other young people from remote and emerging communities, skills exchange and performance both in Australia and internationally

所有的“跨越边界”巡展成员的入选是因为他们都曾经与他人合作探索新方法,创造交互艺术
并且在社区合作和对远程及新兴社区辅导年轻人有着丰富的经验

To date they have created: the world’s first audio-visual battle record, avatar nightclubs, interactive installations, electromechanical museum installations, huge sound sculptures, award winning ‘music’ clips, solar powered sound systems, extraordinary street art and new digital games

迄今为止,他们创造了:世界上第一个视听对战唱片,阿凡达化身夜总会,互动装置,机电博物馆装置,巨型声音雕塑,获奖音乐短片,太阳能供电音响系统,非凡的街头艺术和新锐数字游戏

Many of our artists have international reputations in their fields of expertise and all are highly skilled in creating stimulating environments and presenting interactive performances incorporating laser light, soundscapes, film and music which will both entertain and inform your audiences

我们的艺术家很多都在他们专长的领域具有国际声望,并且擅长结合激光灯,音景,电影和音乐来创造令人振奋的环境特效以及呈献互动演出

Our project also included a series of skills development workshops to be held for young Chinese artists and students during the lead up to the performances. These workshops assited in providing specialist skills in DJing, VJing, laser light technology, digital animation and sound installation

我们的活动也包括一系列面向中国年轻艺术家和学生技能发展研讨会,并希望最终能帮他们把作品搬上舞台。这些研讨会将对特殊技能包括DJ打碟,VJ影像特效编混,激光灯技术,数字动画和音响装置等技术提供辅助指导。
