KAI-OI JOYCE YUNG
Kai-Oi Joyce Yung’s process-led practice spans video, installation to drawing and live performance, merging digital technologies with lo-fi craft.
Her sculptures, immersive video narratives and multi-sensory interventions are propelled by a desire to seek perspectives of truth through expulsing sites of conflict within the individual and examining structures of hierarchy.
After (the world)
Moving image / sound art, 2011
After (The World) offers Yung’s scale of a possible new world concluding the chaos of industrial advance, ecological destruction and social suicide.
Characteristic of Yung’s bewildering diverse process combining photography, animation, video, sculpture, and sound, conjures an ethereal kaleidoscopic universe that gives rise to hope of a new structure after the end of all.

EFGABD is a video piece which sees Yung exploring chance processes sprung from a structure based on a Fibonacci based matrix. Here she invites musician Mark Pilkington to produce a sonic component (harmony/texture), whilst she created a visual score, both working independently, with only length and the chords ‘EFGABD’ as the determining factors. Working independently, her visuals transform these letters into lines and minimal geometric shapes, playing on the musical technique of the pitch axis theory. Both visual and sound were then brought together on the timeline with minimal editing. The result is an experimental moving image work generating a mesmerising sonic visual landscapes, synchronicity by chance. The work is a part of a series of videos created by Yung that prompts viewer to explore diverse personal, cross-narratives.

Two artists demonstrating unique ways to generate animated imagery.
Like some rorschach psychological game we are encouraged to release and free our minds to the impossible – to animate.
From the early Dadist’ experiments in film to the occult crazed French Surrealists they knew the power, glamour and metamorphic nature of animated graphics and film.
Animation’s alluring ability to float and morph.
The will to transform into a limitless landscape of shape and silhouette where in lies a dreamlike experience that is somehow between thought and hallucination.
Limited editioned exhibition posters by the individual artists involved in the series will be available to buy. Details to follow.
