Guest Speaker: Candice Ng

Candice Ng’s works have revolved around memories or rituals. She is very interested to translate these “past” events or behaviors into the “new” digital medium. This is very interesting as we do not relate behavior or habits of our young days (especially when a lot of new media was not introduced).

Her work “Conscious Bits” caught my eye as shows snippets of a person’s life and teachings by interacting with the work. I feel that it not only let us know a bit of their lives and their upbringing.

Questions I would ask Candice are:

If identity formed by existence of a being when he/she is alive, then why is it only marked by death?

Why is the idea of personal identity so important when in this new media age where there should be a greater focus on global identity instead.
