Understanding Media(2014) utilises broadcasting media, social media and an exhibition event to construct its relational aesthetics with its audience, rendering offline and online realities through physical presence and internet identities.

A video recorder and a computer were set up to film the activities in the exhibition and was broadcasted over the internet (on Ustream and Facebook). Along with a small screen on the floor showing the broadcasted video. Next to the camera, 2 panels LED photographic lights were set up.

 

The function of the recorded footages is questionable, which is the actual work? the durational moment when the activities in the gallery is being streamed? then what about the time when the exhibition was still on but the stream was off? or is it the documented footage of the  exhibition? And does these activities matter at all? Is the video the work?
