Oliver Hangl (Austria)

Trained as a theater actor, Austrian artist Oliver Hangl’s works fuses elements of performance and action art. The majority of these are live productions open for audience participation set in public spaces and focuses on the characteristics of the venues. Projects presented by his company Olliwood Production (olliwood.com), such as “Naked Cinema” and “Taipei Guerilla Walks,” are combinations of theater and cinema. Nevertheless, these projects abandon the screen and the stage, integrating their simulated scenarios into the reality in which, the audience simultaneously becomes the both the performer and the viewer.
Hangl has participated in many art festivals including MALTA Festival (Poland, 2009), Wir Sind Wien (Austria, 2011), Linz Ars Electronica (Austria, 2009 ), Quergeblickt: 100 Jahre Technisches Museum Wien (Technisches Museum Wien, Vienna, 2009) and the EXPO 2005 in Aichi, Japan. He is an adjunct lecturer of theater, cinema, and media science at the Vienna University. He is also the founder of project space “K48-offensive for contemporary perception.”

Jun Yang (Austria, Japan, Taiwan)

Jun Yang utilizes diverse media including video, installations, publications, discussions, and transformations of public space. His starting point is to raise awareness of critical issues that includes identities, social functions of art institutions, and the social/ political context of public space. Constantly questioning the institutions, the society, and the audience on whether the reality we see and exist in is real, his pieces are alternatives to what the society is lacking, by showing they are possibilities rather than the only reform option.
His artwork has been shown amongst others at the 51st Venice Biennial (Italy), Liverpool Biennial 2006 (UK), Manifest 4 (the European Biennial, Germany), International Documentary Film Festival Marseille (France, 2001) and Taipei Biennial 2008 (Taiwan).

Blast Theory (United Kingdom)

Led by Matt Adams, Blast Theory was co-founded with Ju Row Farr and Nick Tandavanitj in the U.K. Their virtual reality games are unique in the new media art scene. The games are the “platform” and “motivation” used by the group to attract audiences to participate in completing their artworks. Unlike conventional online games, their pieces connect users in the real world and in the cyberspace. The interaction is likened to psychological warfare, constructing a new reality. In their work, the audience plays multiple roles. On one hand, they are characters in the game and performers in the artwork that they complete and on the other, they remain as themselves in the reality and in the cyberspace.
Blast Theory has won the Prize for Interactive Art at Linz Ars Electronica, the Maverick Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards, etc. Their work has been shown at ICC in Tokyo, the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney Biennale, the National Museum of Fine Arts in Taiwan, Hebbel Theater in Berlin, Basel Art Fair, Dutch Electronic Arts Festival, Sonar Festival in Barcelona, Palestine International Video Festival and Sundance Film Festival. The group is often invited to disseminate their ideas in seminars and lectures around the globe.

He has won Honorable Mentions in Interactive Art at Linz Ars Electronica in 2002 and 2003, the Grand Prize at the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2003 and the Excellence Award at the Japan Media Arts Festival in 2010.
