Emotions are familiar yet also an unfamiliar partner to us. For artists, emotions affect also the aesthetics of their works and their life. Through more than a month of collecting and sorting of an array of objects, sound artist Alain Chiu and poet Nicholas Wong transformed the objects into vessels of emotions. Each type of emotion is being showcased as a metaphor or being personified, to help broaden the public’s understanding and imagination of various emotions. During the lecture performance, Alain and Nicholas will unseal each object in front of the audience, and demonstrate how to record and ‘process’ emotions through the use of sound and text.

  • In English, for approximately 40 minutes.
  • Suitable for ages 12 or above.
  • Free admission, registration required.

He has also contributed writing to Manchester International Festival and One Hand Clapping for Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

Alain Chiu (Composer & Sound Artist)

Composer and sound artist Alain’s body-of-works sits firmly at the juncture of contemporary music, sound art, and multimedia art. It ranges from traditional music, sound installations, experimental musical theatre, to virtual reality videos and video installations. Chiu received his Bachelor of Music degree in composition at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He founded Trilateral Lab, an experimental performance collective, dedicated to challenging the existing form and structure of performing arts.
