FP Writer and Artist Winnie Yan’s glimpses of the TIAF 2018 highlights how seeing differently in animation is rooted in the technology that evolves around and generates the art form.

Either way, the persistence of vision makes our eyes unique apparatus connecting to the world of the unknown imaginary.
Zach McLane and Susan Lin, two fresh graduates from USC, visited the Floating Projects and activities associated with FP members all over Hong Kong a weekend in late September. Zach returns with a “dedication” to mark the brief moment of his trip which seems the new beginning of many things to come. And what about videography?
FP writer Winnie Yan’s thoughts on the unique, interchangeable place of the artist’s hands and eyes, and the pro-musicial quality of moving image streams, were provoked in her visit at the EXiS 2018 while contemplating the works of montage masters such as Stan Brakhage and Robert Breer, and recently fuelled by her direct encounter with 16mm filmmaking. 「據點」作者忻慧妍遊訪首爾的實驗電影與錄像節2018，眼前眾蒙太奇大師如Stan Brakhage 和 Robert Breer 的作品，加上個人近期親身「落手」的16釐米電影拍攝經驗，勾起了各種對活動影像的迷思：手與眼的結合，影像流的近音樂性等等。

A visit to Gwangju Biennale alerted FPC member Lee Kai-chung to the possibilities of doing an artist’s residency in Seoul to study archiving practices for art, which he did and shared upon his return to HK in “Can’t Live Without.” 「這次駐場計劃是基於第一次在光州雙年展後到訪過MMCA作資料搜集的經驗出發的。那時其實並不知道有駐場計劃可以申請，只是純屬對一個藝術館的好奇…」
