Light in Taiyuan - Workshop


Light is used as a medium to understand the drawing. Light is being colelcted at different hours of a day and store it in a time corridor. Light moves when you start connecting different moments in time. Lightscape is a picture painted with light. Many lightscapes done at the same place but different times of day are put into rapid succession of sequential images, making light a precondition for story telling.

Information Physicalization Workshop


Information visualization is a method for understanding abstract data using graphical representation. Most often this is done via printed graphs and charts or as animations on a computer screen. With some creative use of microcontrollers and servo motors and other actuators, we can make physical and kinetic representations of chosen data. Maybe even understand changes over time in the data better. In this workshop, we will do few experiments with environmental data translated to motion and make a kinetic sculpture that can perform information physicalization for us.

Vocal and objects improv performance workshop

在聆聽、呼吸、發聲中挖掘聲音表演的可能,實驗除了傳統歌唱或語言以外的發聲方式,發展人聲打擊聲、呼吸的移動、各式音質、音色與震動,以及與空間中原音反射的運用。除了自己的身體或生活中的物件來發展各種聲音的質地,與夥伴組合各種即興表演試驗,或與建築空間和聆聽做結合。 參與者可自備發聲物件: 思考不同的材質怎樣發出不同的聲音,思考大小容器/空間的迴蕩性,以一物件與別的物件來互相彈奏。尋找什麼是可以彈奏的物件(包括手/身體),可以回聲的空間(也可以很小)。各式物件如何產生不同的聲音質感與音色。

The workshop explores different possibility in listening, breathing and making vocal sounds. In addition to singing and spoken words, there is also arcappella, using vocal cords to reproduce percussions, breathing, various sound quality and timbre, vibration, plus echoes. Various sounds are produced through the body of a performer or some everyday objects. There are also improptu performances by groups of performers, making use of the built spaces, or simply human’s capacity to listen. Participants are encouraged to bring various noise making objects and see if they can work out the following questions: How does different textures generate different sound? How does echoing effect differ between big and small containers? How to give a musical performace by using one or multiple objects? What makes good instruments (including your hands/ body)? What types of space create an echo (size does not seem to matter)? How do various objects produce different sound quality and timbre?

White Umbrella Project


It all began in 2008, when dimension plus and partners had an idea, “Our intention was simple. We wanted to find a voice for all universal human rights.” “People quietly walking around with an white umbrella in their hands, with images of victims of violence throughout history are proejcted onto the canopies.” Initially, we wanted to use the umbrellas as a medium of sound, or employ infrared cameras to detect locations of the umbrella to get precise projections. It was only in 2016 when we developed a mini DIY analogue projector that people were able to replicate the steps and started build their own projectors and even remodelling them. In this year’s TAxT, visitors will be invited to build their own mini projectors and raise their own white umbrellas.
