This exhibition features recent work by Pacific Rim artists that push the boundaries of narrative through works in experimental animation, 3-D digital animation, video, and film. Artists were chosen for their ability to weave the past with the present, the local with the universal, and the ancient with the futuristic through their work. Established artists like Japanese-American artist Bruce Yonemoto and Taiwanese artists Charlene Shih are juxtaposed with rising stars like Korean-born New Zealander Lee, Hye Rim, and balanced out with exciting works by emerging Taiwanese artists such as Su, Hui-Yu, Tao, Mei-Yu, Chiang, Chung-Lun and Ma Kuang-Pei.
