Incorporating elements of performance in the most advanced capacities of VR technology, The Insensible Cities results from the artists’ shared interest in addressing and challenging the ideological and historical frameworks that govern one’s origins and identities. Through the sensory documentation of the multiple layers of time, memory, perception, and ideas, The Insensible Cities is a unique VR experience that reintroduces, reinterprets, and restructures the changing dimensions of everyday life in Asia beyond the conventions of cinema and performing arts.
The Insensible Cities is supported by Arts Council Korea (ARKO) and International Arts Joint Fund Korea-Singapore International Exchange Program.
Dr Ella Raidel (Austria/Singapore), is a filmmaker, artist, and researcher. She is an Assistant Professor at the School of Art, Design and Media and at the WKWSCI School of Communication and Information (both Nanyang Technological University). Her interdisciplinary practice—encompassing films, videos, and research—creates a discursive space for filmmaking, art, and research focused on the socio-cultural aspects of globalisation, urbanisation and the representation of images.
In his writings, films, and performance pieces, Dr Hyun-Suk Seo (South Korea) investigates places and senses. He is Professor at the Graduate School of Communication and Arts at Yonsei University (South Korea). His performance projects unfold in actual places as site-specific work. He often uses virtual reality technologies to construct layers of memories and experiences that question our senses and the boundaries of artworks.
