Intimacy, Mediated is an experimental project featuring works by artists Sunday Lai, Eric Tsang and Solomon Yu. Modern relationships are now a popular topic of discussion as new means of interaction develop and permeate our everyday culture. With the growing incorporation of new media into our lifestyle what is supposedly diminished is an organic interaction with our surroundings, as the application of these developments become standardized in a mass-produced environment, mediated by the limitations of the new objects and ideas in the market. Stemming from the questions of how we create, consume and relate to images in the digital age and how we position the personal in a consumer society, Intimacy, Mediated is an attempt to understand and leave an open question as to the transformations imposed on intimacy and its direction towards mediation.

Eric Tsang will be presenting a series of hand made cameras, adapted from Ikea furniture pieces; a project that emerged as a collaboration between the artist – a photographer, and his father – a carpenter. Tsang will be building on the mechanisms implemented within his Single and Twin Lens Cameras, continuing to explore questions of consumption, family and the language of objects.

Sunday Lai takes a playful approach to the modern market and our interaction with it. In her work “TV Peeking”, Lai intervenes with television screens displayed in various storefronts with a universal remote, expanding the intimacies associated with the home, in terms of objects we construct our daily lives with, now being restricted by popular ideals.

Solomon Yu’s appropriation of well circulated press photos strike a tone between sincere and ironic, or in the artist’s words, “ high hope and despair”. Yu choreographs these images into GIFs, which lend themselves to a repeated, re-experiencing of a particular moment in time, leaving us with a perverse sense of intimacy with such images and the events they depict.
