From Visuality to Plasticity: The Visual Spectacle in the Age of Digital Culture in Taiwan
The 1980s was an era of dramatic changes in Taiwan’s political reality, social culture, and artistic creation. Taiwanese artists hope to form a pictorial dialogue with the viewer through the humanistic image rich in historical memory, the ecological images of natural customs, and living memory of its own, and frame many creative works in response to the changing imagery and contemporary life in the society of the spectacle. After 2000, the technology of digital images has become more prevalent and cast a significant impact on the creativity of image art. This talk would like to share a variety of artistic creativities, from photography to new media arts, which also denote cultural exchanges between Taiwan and Japan.
