#NewMediaInteractiveInstallation #Poetry #MultifacetedAestheticExperience

Visual artists matthew tsang and lily leung join poets yam gong, kwan muk-nam and wong leung-wo in bringing about these multimedia interactive installations that place the audience in a world of bleeding-edge poetry. by juxtaposing visuality, technology and verses, the collaboration presents a renewed sensory experience set against the enduring heritage buildings in tai kwun.

Founded by voice & verse poetry magazine in 2019, voice of verse is an ongoing preservation project. local poets from various generations are sampled during readings recorded in a professional studio. the text and audio are then hosted on the voice of verse website, in a hybrid format that distributes as much as it archives the poetry of hong kong. in 2021, voice of verse platformed the project poetry and the electric wave with musicians and video artists, coalescing into seven music videos. voice of verse received the award for arts promotion and education at the 16th hong kong arts development awards.
