Curatorial Statement
In 2019, the 14th Digital Art Festival Taipei adopts the theme of #RTS: ReTranSens to discuss how our imagination of the world has been realized, and at the same time, changing because of rapidly evolving technology. The knowledge system built upon accumulated experiences has also been transformed with new physical perceptions and feedbacks due to regeneration, bionic and artificial life echnologies. These feedbacks, in turn, further expand into new perceptive systems, creating a network connecting individuals and communities. These fast-paced changes enable us to adapt and respond in a quicker way, allowing us to view the world in a new light. Meanwhile, the drastic change that is re-programming the logic of communication also serves as a way for people to affirm their existence.
 
With the focuses mentioned above, #RTS: ReTranSens explores the following issues: how artificial life regenerates and expands human perceptions, how artists incorporate predictions of scientific results, imagination of the technological life and the future of technology into their art practices, how more issues can be included in the dialogue between art and technology, how to put these issues into practice in our present life, how these changes shape the modes of new human behavior, and how art represents these changes and the multi-plural forms of existence outside of our perceptive experiences when science, technology and science fiction are bravely venturing beyond virtuality and imagination.
