Translation, Media & Music: A Collaborative Presentation

In this presentation, artists Sougwen Chung and Luisa Pereira discuss translation and collaboration in the various facets of their creative practice, finding parallels, intersections and points of divergence.

The two first met as inaugural members of The New Museum’s incubator, NEW INC. Despite working with different media (Chung works primarily with drawings, Pereira with music), they both share a deep-seated curiosity about the creative and expressive potential of the interactions between humans and computers.

Together they will examine the processes and inspirations that have led to the creation of their own physical and digital interfaces, hybrid systems, and installations. In this presentation, Chung and Pereira will present their work in tandem, discuss the threads that run through both their practices, and present the first sketches of a new collaborative piece.
