Wei-Ming Ho

The Art-Qaeda Project

Video

In a weird atmosphere, the project set out for an exciting adventure. Do the images represent the visual signals, an extraordinary parade or a silent protest? By means of guerrilla action, this project presents the conversation between the images and the city environment.
This video includes various elements of statistics and symbols such as Environmental Sustainability Index and Morse code. We use the concept of Morse code in the background music metaphorically and interpret the meanings of Environmental Sustainability Index behind the scenes by measuring the volume, capacity, square measure, quantity, time…etc. We mean to mix calculations, environment and visual images to present different thoughts.

Wei-Ming Ho is engaged in research and the creation of visual art. He focuses on experimental media, film and video art.
