“HKACT! Act 1 BeHere” focused on individual people’s snapshots and images of daily life in Hong Kong from 1940s to 1970s. Actors were then invited to act out perceived scenes and shot by photogrammetry with 70 cameras in 360 degrees to create 3D figures. These figures are then augmented onto 10 public spaces in Wan Chai.

“BeHere” is a platform that encourages the audience to explore their own experience. They are free to interact with the 3D figures in virtual space, to re-composite the scene between the two realities with their own imagination, and to include their family and friends into the frame.

Fujihata says, “‘BeHere’ is a virtual lens to bring people from the past back into the present. For all societies, it is very important for each generation to inherit their own history. History emerges from accumulated and shared personal experiences. We see heritage as an object from the past, but the present will be our heritage in the future. ‘BeHere’ becomes a platform to retrieve memories of the past and places them in the present, allowing visitors of all ages to create moments together as an archive for the future.”

:: HKACT! Act 2 BEING PARALLEL: 28.11.2018 – 28.02.2019 :: Osage Gallery Solo Exhibition by Masaki Fujihata

Opening Reception: 28.11.2018,  6.00 – 8.00 pm

Exhibition Period: 29.11.2018  –  28.02.2019

Fujihata says, "New media art needs to have a critical consciousness of new media technology and must be a creation of new media itself. New media art is an invention of new medium. My intention is to create a new medium that warns the danger of the technology, which is driven by capitalism."

This exhibition is Act 2 of HKACT! -- a solo exhibition featuring the canonical works of the visionary new media artist Masaki Fujihata. Rather than formulating a chronology of Fujihata’s artistic career retrospectively, the exhibition aims to present a selection of his works that were informed by technologies paradigmatic of the times, through which Fujihata had incisively reflected on the relationship between digital and analog.

 Venue: Osage Hong Kong, 4/F, 20 Hing Yip Street, Kwun Tong, Hong Kong

Opening Hours:
Mon – Sat: 10.30 am – 6.30 pm
