The Light Fantastic at Louis Vuitton Cultural Space Taipei

For more than 150 years, the house of Louis Vuitton has been collaborating with artists, engineers, designers and craft artists in order to make products of unparalleled elegance and style.  With Marc Jacobs as Artistic Director, these collaborations have helped reinvent the brand and push it in innovative new directions that combine fashion and art.

Liu Dao (island6) is an artist run, not-for-profit collective of artists, photographers, film-makers, graphic designers, dancers, choreographers and electronic engineers based in Shanghai, who work collaboratively to research and extend the boundaries of electronic and interactive art.  They are an eclectic group who work together in different ways to combine photography, video, graphic art, found objects, dance and drama into a variety of innovative digital and electronic art objects.

Electronic and digital communications are an inescapable part of contemporary life, and are used by Liu Dao in juxtaposition with more traditional media to create a complex and elegant sensory environment.  Their works literally make something out of nothing.  They use electroluminescence to transform the surface of the artwork into a platform for some wry or witty dramatic action.  Their innovative work uses technology to bridge the past and the future.  It is likely to strike a chord in Taiwan where Taipei has the highest rate of wireless penetration in the world and where the electronics industry is the engine that drives the country’s economic development.
