Data Gaga

Wikitopia is the first festival on collaborative future in Hong Kong initiated by Videotage since 2010. The festival aims to act as the pivotal point for artists, ICT personnel, media activists, curators, writers, thinkers and any curious minds to exchange insight and knowledge through a diverse range of programmes in town.

This year, Wikitopia’s theme Data Gaga focuses on data as art, network technology, and the collaborative creativity of the ‘Makers’ Culture. We also expand the festival to a five-month programme from September 2012 - January 2013, including workshops, exhibition, performance, artist forum, screenings, panel, and many others.

Data Gaga is a series of distributed events that focuses on data as art, network technology and collaborative creativity. Detoured from the common exhibition practice of showcasing individual works, Data Gaga is a distributed realisation of concepts.

維基托邦是香港首個協作未來文化祭,於2010年由錄映太奇所創。
文化祭是各種專業知識交流的中樞,以連串廣泛活動,雲集藝術家、信息及通訊技術(ICT) 人員、網絡活躍份子、策展人、作家、思想和其他好奇之士。

是次維基托邦以「塑據格格」為主題,探討以數據為藝術素材、各種網絡技術,以及提倡以合作產生創意的「發明家」文化。同時,維基托邦將成為一個長達五個月的節目,由2012年9月至2013年1月,一連串工作坊、展覽、表演、藝術家座談會、放映會及其他新穎節目將會舉行。

塑據格格以數據、網絡技術及協作而生的創意為主題,包含一連串分散的活動。塑據格格脫離一般展覽展示獨立作品的做法,將各種概念整合,並重新分佈呈現。

Exhibition date: 19-29/10/2012 10am-8pm
Venue: Hong Kong Cultural Centre Foyer, Tsim Sha Tsui
