The most avant-garde new media art co-exists and thrives in a busy real urban space. Mapped projections and embedded LEDs can dissolve building facades into the most fascinating displays. Unfortunately contemporary urban advertising uses media screens as billboards to exclusively promote products and to target consumers. Our senses are being distracted and we are faced with the overload of meaningless, erratic signs and noise. So how can we as artists justify the presence of artistic work within the already busy and exploited urban environments? What does it mean to present digital art in public space? This project would explore artistic content creation and challenges of co-curating for local urban media environments. The 'Imprints of Ephemeral Motion' is one of the art works that is created with different forms of audience participation. The project will bring about awareness to the newly created immersive media content locally and internationally (ISE Amsterdam). In particular, the project would assist in creating and co-curating art works for newly installed Media Art Nexus or MAN-15m by 2m large media wall, located at the NTU North Spine passageway.
