ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:
Multidimensional Sampling Project
James Cao Yuxi + Lawrence
October 8th & 9th, 2019
Multidimensional Sampling Project is a collaborative audiovisual performance project created by Hong Kong-based sound artist Lawrence Lau and New York artist James Cao Yuxi. Lau’s works span music composition, live musical performance, and audiovisual art and installation, while Cao works across fields including sound visualization, programming, and computing.
Humanity's embrace of mobile devices has made the QR code an symbol for the modern world, used for everything from economic transactions to social interactions. In this overwhelming wave of global QR use, Cao and Lau find that the abstract pattern of the QR code is a perfect expression of interaction and reasoning in modern culture. Multidimensional Sampling Project looks to inspire and remind the audience how deep humanity has dived into the digital world, and to ask us to examine the relationship between humanity and technology.
