This publication was published as the catalogue to the exhibition, Crosscurrents – Ambient Art held at Osage  Kwun Tong from 25 January to 09 March 2008.

Crosscurrents: New Media Art is the collective title of a three-part exhibition of new media art that together comprise a cross cultural discourse on art, sound, image and object. It is a co-production by the Osage Art Foundation and the Shenzhen Fine Art Institute. The exhibition began in Shenzhen in mainland China, was further developed in Hong Kong and achieves its final manifestation in Singapore in June – July 2008. In Singapore, Crosscurrents: New Media Art combines works from the exhibitions Sharing Memory and Ambient Art with a new site-specific work by Singaporean artist Zulkifle Mahmod. Sharing Memory comprises work by Beijing-based artists Qiu Zhijie and Jin Jiangbo that was originally shown at the Shenzhen Fine Art Institute and the Shenzhen Book Centre and in Hong Kong in 2007 as a co-production by the Shenzhen Fine Art Institute and the Osage Art Foundation. Ambient Art is an exhibition of a new commissioned piece called Musical Wheel by Hong Kong artist Kingsley Ng. The Singaporean component is a new commissioned work by Zulkifle Mahmod that is an exploration and investigation of space, light and human intervention through sound.

Kingsley Ng’s Musical Wheel is inspired by the industrial area of Kwun Tong in Hong Kong. The essence of work is in the rotational energy that the artist has perceived in the surroundings of Kwun Tong and transformed to allude to movements in the cosmos. By synthesising sound, light, sculpture and site specific environments, Ng aims to generate a more complete environment that surrounds and envelops his audience. In his work various conceptual and methodological practices converge in a creative application of computer music, digital video, interactive multimedia, sculpture, mechanical engineering and music composition. The presence of the audience is also crucial to this work. Musical Wheel considers the relations between the viewing body, the visual image and the fine aural sensations that can be explored with new technology. The structure, music, light projections and movement of the piece are designed to absorb the audience both physically and spiritually in a fully integrated art experience. Musical Wheel induces a quiet contemplation of one’s place in the world through subtle changes in the work itself according to the number of participants.

In Sharing Memory, issues of history, society, ideology, consumerism and globalization are examined through public interaction. Many of the artworks that use digital and computer technology revert back into being inanimate objects unless there is participation by the audience. Some of these works suggest new ways to see the world and to make meaning of the past and they let us navigate this world on our own through strategies of gaming, simulation and hyperlinks. Others connect us as a community by requiring more than one participant to activate the work so that we can only engage with the artwork when there is another participant involved. By letting the audience manipulate and affect the artwork, Sharing Memory explores new media as the means through which the public of a modern society can exercise their cultural power.
