Disoriental (Limoges, France)

Is he here or there, in China, Canada, or France? The ‘other’ being in and out of place.
Dressed in white, wearing a bamboo sun hat and barefoot, and in dark glasses, Wong materializes himself at the entrance of the Saint-Etienne Bridge in Limognes France on a clear summers day. Walking seemingly disorientated he navigates using an iPad screen as a spatiotemporal window on his digital journey.

This work was created for Digital Visions, an exhibition and online project curated by Systaime.
15 international artists were invited to create new digital works responding to 15 different sites in Limousin. Each responded to the city via an online perspective, utilizing different web based platforms to explore and create new works.
The 15 sites are varied, melting urban landscapes, historic and heritage sites, panoramic views, contemporary art and more unusual places.
Users can explore the works through June 28th to 6th September 2014 by using the Digital Visions app to explore the city and unearth the works. Equally the works can be seen at the Bibliothèque in Limoges, or online via digitalvisions.fr
