31 Aug 2021
HKBU held the Next-Generation Art Technologies Forum on 31 August, bringing together experts from industry, academia and government to discuss the fusion of science, technology and art, and the opportunities opened up by the new era of Art Tech.
The Forum, conducted in hybrid mode, was co-organised by the Cameron Pace Group – China, a 3D technology and production company led by renowned movie director James Cameron; the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) of Switzerland; and the School of Creative Media at the City University of Hong Kong.
Mr Alfred Sit Wing-hang, Secretary for Innovation and Technology, and Mrs Cherry Tse Ling Kit-ching, Permanent Secretary for Home Affairs of the Government of the HKSAR, were the Forum’s guests of honour.
Professor Alexander Wai, President and Vice-Chancellor of HKBU, said that in the past, art and technology tended to be in different domains, but technology has assumed an increasingly important role in assisting artists not just to produce their existing works but also to create new art works and forms.
