Time Based, Non-Places
Time-Based Art refers to film, video andanimation, which form sequence using single screen image and flow in one singletime-based direction. The issues of within time and in between time arise afterthe introduction of digital media in which time can be reversed or a particularperiod can be selected randomly and merged with other spots of time. This onsite feature attempts to discuss the intersubjectivity of virtual space as wellas the correlation between virtual and physical space. With this theme in mind,the Biennale will seek to address the time-based experience of spatialpresentation. By gathering projects from internationally renowned artists, theBiennale will try to compile a global collection of digital images. Throughconsolidating films, videos and animations into a specific spatial experience,this can be seen as an extension of the traditional media based on theaforementioned new media. This also suggests how we should reflect on thereminiscence of these related traditions, nostalgia and modernity.
The 3rd Shenzhen Independent AnimationBiennale will consist of six main components: Animation in Space, SpecialScreening, Live Animation, Nominated New Works, Talk & Symposium andGIF-ing Online Section.
