DIASPORA


Diaspora, the theme of this year's a2nual show, refers to dispersion and movement away from a particular location. The challenging circumstances of our modern world has created a diasporic spread across different areas, such as the fragmentation of societies, global information, and values. This changes the nature of persistence, and the way we understand it. Because of the diasporic spread on a technological level, information is eruptive and disseminated through the Internet, breaking boundaries bounded by regions and bringing people closer together as a result of globalization. Diasporization becomes inevitable.

Amidst these developments, we are urged to empower ourselves by broadening our ways of seeing, so that we may present our understanding of a fragmented world through a multifaceted lens. Even if we excel in different fields, we still share the same roots and belong to the same place.

This year's SCM Annual brings together the School of Creative Media's graduates works of class 2020 and 2021. It is a showcase to the passion and tenacity of such individuals that have powered through in the light of the pandemic, and created artworks that demonstrate a profound understanding of interdisciplinary practices. The artworks convey emotions and thoughts, and analyze our understanding and cognition of the world from the artist's aspects.

離散


今年年度展的主題是「離散 Diaspora」。離散,Diaspora,即以某點為中心出發並進行擴散的狀態。身處這個流動性極高的時代,社會的文化軌跡上充斥著「離散」:移民潮、難民危機、殖民主義等。這改變了存留的本質,更甚是我們如何理解它的方式。亦有賴科技層面上的「離散」,信息於互聯網上噴發傳播,無視地域的界限,拉近了人與人之間的距離。離散,已經是這個時代的大方向。

我們正在集體地脫離傳統給予我們固有的框架,不斷進步,踏入全新的領域。隨著變革的產生,新的想法得以孕育而生。我們的未來將會是充滿想像和無限的可能。透過在不同層面上的離散運動,體現出多元文化和自由。但,即使我們將向著不同的領域百花齊放,我們依然同根同源,歸屬於同一個地方。

創意媒體學院2021年度展匯聚了2019/20年度及2020/21年度的畢業生作品,展示各人在大流行病影響下實踐跨學科的創作熱情與努力堅毅。以人為本的創作,傳遞創作者的情感與思想,從多方面剖析我們對世界的理解和認知。


FOREWORD


Preface

It is always a pleasure to write the introduction to the SCM Annual. It is especially so this year, one in which all our graduating students have had to surmount great challenges in order just to be able to produce and create their work. Online education has been an enterprising solution to the challenges of maintaining business as usual under COVID 19; however, it can never replace the hands on, face-to-face mentorship, learning, collaboration and practice that is so essential to creative media education. I salute all the students who have submitted work to the 2021 SCM Annual. Your tenacity and hard work is a testimony to the spirit of SCM, which is clearly alive and well!

The theme of this year’s show—Diaspora—is a fitting one given the COVID 19 times that we are living in, where we have all been forced to live and work apart from each other. However, the term has particular resonance for Hongkongers, many of whom are born to families of emigres or have family members who have emigrated. The good news is that the sense of impermanence, in betweenness, and separation that defines Diaspora provides a seedbed for imaginative reflection upon the conditions of selfhood and the relationship of self to the broader society one inhabits, which is the well-spring of creative art.

Once again, in the 2021 SCM Annual, we see how SCM students have engaged with the media of film, animation, new media, gaming, and sound art with ingenuity, dexterity and a singular vision to explore both their own subjectivity and the world into which they have been thrown, a world which is not of their making, but one which, through art, can be imagined anew. Each of these works deserves close examination and appreciation and together they attest to the extraordinary creative spirit that pervades the School. Congratulations again to all the artists and creators in the show!


為創意媒體學院年度展 2021撰寫序言總是令人愉快的。尤其是在本年度,面對巨大的挑戰下,我們畢業生的作品在各位的努力之中仍然順利的誕生了。在2019冠狀病毒病疫情的影響下,我們無可奈何的採用了網上教學這種進取的解決方案; 然而,它永遠無法取代對創意媒體教育至關重要的要素:面對面的指導、學習、協作和實踐。 我向所有於創意媒體學院年度展 2021參展的學生致敬,你們的堅韌和努力印證了創意媒體學院那充滿活力和保持優秀的精神!

本年度年度展的主題——離散——切合我們現正身處的時代:2019冠狀病毒迫使各位與他人分開生活和工作。然而,許多香港人出生在移民家庭或有移民的家庭成員,以至離散一詞對我們有更特別的共鳴。 有幸的是,定義離散的無常感、中間感和分離感也能提供反思的温床,為對自身和身邊更廣泛的社會關係進行富有想像力的反思,這就是創意與藝術的源泉.

再次強調,在創意媒體學院年度展 2021中,我們可以看到創意媒體學院的學生如何以獨創、靈巧和獨特的視野與電影、動畫、新媒體、遊戲和聲音等媒體進行互動,以探索他們自己的主觀性和世界:他們不是創造了世界,卻用自身的藝術重新把世界描繪出來。 每件作品都值得仔細觀察和欣賞,它們共同證明了學院所具有的非凡創造精神。 再次恭賀年度展中的每一位藝術家和創作者!
