C. Overall Comments

The competition held for the first time this year at EMAP, generated much attention towards field of media art internationally.

Many young domestic and foreign artists presented various works of art, however, there were relatively less participation in music video and animation category.

The artworks were the results of young generations expressing their concerns about society through their understanding of digital world and reality. Regardless of their different culture and background, the artists have formed a bond of mutual understanding through universal language, acquired from media environment that encompasses the world.

We are expecting all the selected artworks of passionate young artists to give vibrant thrill to many audiences.

This year’s EMAP award winning work for Media Art section, <I’m Happy to have an exam today> by Jaze Chan from Hong Kong, represents the situation that young students are facing in current educational environment and a father’s psychology of facing such situation through static description.

Using a point of view of the father whose son committed suicide, the work traces the initial incident leading to his despair with a delicate depiction of the character that endures the loss. The work strongly demonstrates the power of modern art that can initiate reflection of society such as Hong Kong’s educational social system.

Adobe prize winning animation <MOLD> by Sujin Kim showed excellent portrayal of human body’s texture and movement. Such depiction incorporated with sound created massive and dynamic energy which highlighted the energy inherent in human body as well as the flowing line of body. It is a high-quality animation containing outstanding sense of volume with great movement and structure.
