Workshop by Hung Keung: The Making of Digital Calligraphy - Flip and Fly

Conducted by Hong Kong based new media artist Hung Keung, Flip and Fly is a workshop that offers an opportunity for participants to explore Chinese character-writing and creating their own animated characters. The first part of the workshop will be a 20 minute presentation by the artist on his findings on the formation of Chinese characters and how calligraphy encapsulates their essence. For the second part and the core of the session, he will invite all the participants to create their own Chinese characters through calligraphy writing. The results of this workshop will then form the backbone of the artist's future installation Dao Gives Birth to One Project, which participants will be invited to view a few weeks after the event (either at the gallery or virtually on the web).
