"Wired Blossoms and Electric Angels"

The electronic artists of the island6 art collective (Liu Dao 六岛) seek to unveil the softer side of technology in a stunning new show that brings together two seemingly disparate elements. Nature and technology are often thought to be disconnected, sometimes even at odds with each other. But just as the religious see in every piece of earthly matter the divine face of god, Liu Dao finds in every pulse and hum of modernity the benevolent gentleness of the natural world. Afterall, is technology not composed of natural elements – the electrons, protons, quarks, leptons that occupy mysterious little corners of physics, eluding and fascinating us with their inscrutability?

Our world runs on electricity that buzzes ferociously through a multitude of criss-crossing cables like blood in our veins. The beauty of two parts made whole is coaxed into view. Through animated LEDs and interactive video, Liu Dao chases the gentle breeze that blows along electric cables, gazes upon the warm face of humanity in programmed diodes, and breathes the pollen-filled fragrance of Spring in the electrified air.

At Opposite House, the antithetical, the contradictory, and the opposite are reunited in an electronic art show that celebrates the delicacy, grace and beauty of nature.
