BURN by Shu Lea Cheang
a KOP project
CALLING sound artists, musicians and DJs for BURN-MP3 upload
Shu Lea Cheang presents a recent online experience 'BURN' as a generous
interactive social gesture. The work celebrates the file sharing practice of P2P
(peer to peer), while creating a browser based public upload and download mp3
sharing space on the web. The act of sharing music files is the focus of this
online project, which calls for public music upload and download. A pile of
blank BURN CD is made available in the gallery space for the 'burning' act -
download and burn. The BURN interface further allows users to encode the
uploaded MP3 music files in assorted color (i.e. juice, baby blue, acid
yellow....) that explores system/theories of colour and music.
During BURN's exhibition at Singapore Art Museum, we call for Singaporean and
inter-continental sound artists, musicians and Djs to join us for music upload.
The participation of music upload helps to create a a rich archive of public
domain MP3s, By allowing the user free access to this archive, BURN is a
celebration of digital abundance and an act of defiance against the legal and
techno-cratic enforcement of artificial scarcity online.
BURN was commissioned by the Foundation for Art & Creative Technology and the
VirtualCentreMedia.net with the support of the Culture 2000 programme.
BURN was first presented at FACT, Liverpool and 2003 Venice Biennale's Zone of
Urgency curated by Hou Hanru.

The Italian renaissance imprinted itself on religious icons, Greek legends and fables – so much so that for generations after, the world over, our enduring images of the world of the Bible, of mythology and of legends are seen through the inventive, evocative, powerful lenses of great Italian painters.
In Nativity Nonyas and Other Uncommon Icons, Desmond Sim seeks to re-appropriate the images that we have, in the past, peered at through with other cultural lenses. He prefers to see them through contemporary, Singaporean and Peranakan lenses. He wants to savour them through the lenses of humour and exuberance.
And so Nonyas will stand in for saints and protectors. And local young men and women will stand in for familiar icons from world literature and legends. And they will be appropriated, and totally appropriate for those who live, work and play on this sunny island called Singapore.
