Urban Candy is about the abyss of female/male interaction in metropolitan areas. Metropolitan areas dominate the contemporary life style of the majority of mankind, because biggest part of mankind lives in metropolites and urban life is dominating main communication formats, e.g. film and video. Metropolitan life coines expectations in a special way. Urban Candy investigates the clichés and reality of urban gender by using fiction, experimental and dance film format, assisted by experience and emerging artists like Alison Williams, Oliver Essigmann and Peter Kastner and assisted scientifically by Rebecca Schoensee.

The Vitruvian Woman
A video project elaborated and curated by Michael Chang.
The Vitruvian Woman is a multimedia sculpture created by 34 artists from around the world. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s sketch; The Vitruvian Man, which idealises the classic proportions of the human body, in his case the male body, The Vetruvian Woman sets out to trace the multidimensionality of womanhood in a flow of five three-minute video sequences reflecting the nine bodily regions: the head, heart, stomach, sexual organ, right arm, left arm, left leg, right leg and feet.
This poetry of dismemberment screened on nine monitors draws on diverse chapters of female identity, from scenes of domestic life to the sensibilities of lingerie and lust. Allegories of the flesh and a male beaten to pulp add to the shaky image of female empowerment as it alternately pins its hope on Buddhist mantra and surrenders to the flux of collective consciousness.

U.S. premiere of The Exquisite Corpse Video Project Vol. 2.
The Exquisite Corpse Video Project (ECVP) is a unique video collaboration among international artists, inspired by the Surrealist invention, the "Exquisite Corpse."
In the Surrealist 'game', a paper is folded such that each contributor sees only a small portion of the previous contributor's work, and begins his own work from that small portion. When the last participant is finished, the sheet is unfolded to reveal a strangely divergent, yet contiguous form or figure.
Using the semi-blind, sequential method of the surrealists' game, ECVP participants create video art in response to the final ten seconds of the previous member's work. Each member is asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they please, until everyone's vision is threaded together into an instigating final "corpse."
Coordinated by the Brazilian artist Kika Nicolela, the ECVP project started in April 2008 with artists who met online at the networking site artreview.com, and, over time, other artists were invited to join in. Only recently could such a fast-paced, pan-global, audiovisual variation of this exercise be produced. The inspiring process of exchange among 'strangers' from around the world illuminates the possibilities of globalized, collective creativity.
The second volume was made, which includes 12 new videos made by more than 50 artists from 20 different countries. Each of the 12 videos of the ECVP Vol.2 has a theme, so the artists responded to these themes as well as to the pieces they received from the previous artist.
My contribution to project´s Vol. 2 is the initial film to thread "LANGUAGE" and a middle part film to "ENCOUNTER".
The U.S. Premiere of The Exquisite Corpse Video Project Vol. 2 will be
Friday, October 30, 2009. 8PM at ARTIST´s TELEVISION ACCESS,
