Join us for an exclusive Live Cinema performance that redefines the possibilities of film photography in a digital age, featuring a brand-new collaboration of photographer Wing Shya's unseen-before images, shot on 35 mm film, with nnscya’s experimental soundscape. Through the innovative technology of audio-reactive design, developed by artist Samson Sing Wun Wong, Wing's images will undergo a mesmerising transformation, glitching and warping in real time, synchronised and affected by the musician’s touch. Embrace the unexpected and explore the infinite possibilities of audio-reactive visualisations in this multisensory convergence of music, film, and technology.

About the Artists

Wing Shya (b. 1964, Hong Kong) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work spans the realms of film, art, and fashion. With his skills in typography and graphic design, Shya founded the design studio Shya-la-la Workshop which received numerous awards for its contributions to the Hong Kong music and pop culture scene.  In 1997, he was appointed as the exclusive photographer and graphic designer for movie director Wong Kar-Wai on Happy Together (1997), In the Mood for Love (2000), Eros (2004), and 2046 (2004).

nnscya is a musician whose practice wanders between the musical genres of experimental, electronic, and noise, now heading towards a more tonal and easy listening approach. Her past works include electronic and experimental performances, dance and short film soundtracks, chamber and orchestral music. She is interested in exploring the crossroads of vibration and senses, and sound and emotions, as well as lived experiences, memories, and tactility of the body.

Samson Sing Wun Wong, an artist in visual effects and interactive media, grew up in Hong Kong before pursuing studies and career in Canada. With experience at Image Engine and Digital Domain, he has contributed to blockbuster films, including District 9 (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), X-Men (2014, 2016), and Shadow (2018), as a visual effects supervisor, earning acclaim including the Golden Horse Award for Visual Effects. Collaborating with renowned director Zhang Yimou, Wong’s work has extended to productions and live events like the Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony. Passionate about the intersection of data science, arts, and technology, Wong aims to innovate in this evolving landscape.
