Remembering Ha Bik Chuen: A Talk on New Digital Project at Asia Art Archives

Why We Recommend it

Artist and writer Tyler Coburn introduces Memory Machine, an open work based on images and items found in Ha Bik Cheun’s archives.


New York-based artist Tyler Coburn works with computer-based interfaces, in this case to explore and craft ways of accumulating, organising and digitalising memories.

Using the extensive archives of artist Ha Bik Cheun, who recorded much of Hong Kong’s under-researched art history, Coburn is creating an active web platform, called Memory Machine,  that registered users can interact with.

During his residency at Asia Art Archives, he will conduct a writing workshop that invites participants to activate Memory Machine, a bilingual social network that users can continuously add to, edit, and translate.


When: 17 Aug 2017 - 17 Aug 2017 Where: Asia Art Archives – 11/F, Hollywood Centre, 233 Hollywood Road – Sheung Wan
