event details /

Over the last three VMAC Forums, we have discussed the thrilling potential of the Extended Reality (XR, including Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, and Mixed Reality), such as its narrativity, spatiality, uses to promote mental health, etc. It is time for us to look into another facet – preservation.

In the fourth and last VMAC Forum and the last one under this theme, Project Leader of Save Media Art at Taiwan Digital Art Foundation and time-based media art conservator Yuhsien Chen Joyce and transdisciplinary creator and researcher Eugenia S. Kim share preservation in Extended Reality. How can we converse XR artworks? How does the media help to preserve something previously intangible such as movement or performance?

Eugenia S. Kim

Eugenia S. Kim is a Korean-American transdisciplinary creator and researcher who uses movement and multimedia technology to create narratives and visualizations. Her doctoral research proposed the use of dance and somatic movement practices, motion capture and virtual reality (VR) for creating illness narratives about bipolar disorder. From 2001-2017, she mainly created and performed in live dance works for the stage before switching her focus to motion capture, VR, and the metaverse. She was also a digital archivist/humanist/librarian from 2011-2016 with a focus on digital dance preservation. Most recently she has started to investigate the impact of machine learning and virtual worlds on human-machine relationships. Eugenia is affiliated with the Somatic Practices and Chronic Pain Network (SPCPN) in the UK and the Augmented Materiality Lab in HK. She holds a PhD in Creative Media from the City University of Hong Kong, MS in Information Science from University at Albany, and BS in Electronic Media, Arts and Communications from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.


在過去三次的VMAC Forum,我們討論過延展實境(包括虛擬實境VR、擴增實境AR與混合實境MR)在敘事、空間性以及在心理健康上等應用。現在,我們是時候探索此技術另一個面向——作品保存。

來到第四次亦是最後一次以延展實境為題的VMAC Forum,台灣科技藝術典藏基礎計畫主持人與時基媒體保存維護師陳禹先和跨介別創作者與研究者Eugenia S. Kim,將分享有關保存和延展實境的項目。我們如何保存延展實境的作品?這個媒介又如何幫助保存一些過往難以捕捉的內容,例如動作和演出?
