][LIMINAL][, 2013

][LIMINAL][ by Kenny Wong | Marco de Mutiis

一群飛行器將空降香港,介入各種空間進行連串演練。今年十月,它們以視覺與聽覺及互動形式,於K11 art space讓人親身體驗飛行器在數位藝術的可能性。
The winners of this year’s Bloomberg Digital Arts Initiative present an innovative free exhibition that explores the endless possibilities of digital art, and interact with visitors at K11 art space.

][LIMINAL][ employs a swarm of hacked semi-autonomous flying drones equipped with loudspeakers to create a series of performance on the topic of relational anxiety of inhabiting spaces.

We keep on creating and occupying spaces in our unconscious daily movements. In a massively compressed urban area like Hong Kong, we continuously find ourselves reaching for the smallest available spots to advance through crowds. We try to achieve the highest mobility in a limited volume.

This creates a space that lies in a constant negotiation between temporary presence and absence, a tension embodied in in-between spaces. ][LIMINAL][ aims at enhancing this tension while simultaneously creating an awareness of these transient intermediate states. The project will employ flying drones that will perform in selected places, exploring the spaces and the way we occupy them.

The flying drones will concretize and sonify the instability and anxiety of these mutating spaces. The sound of this army of quadcopters, filling the air with a sense of uneasiness, will be matched by the soundscape generated through their loudspeakers. These sounds will be composed specially for each location, to enhance the existing soundscapes: air-cons, humming noises of an alley and mechanical textures in industrial areas.
