ArtScience On Screen: Seeing Systems at Marina Bay Sands

ArtScience On Screen: Seeing Systems

From 3 Aug
ArtScience Galleries, Level 4 | Free admission

Seeing Systems is a new curated programme exploring some of the organic and non-organic systems that invisibly impact on our lives. Through a series of short but impactful art films, this programme visualises the patterns, structures and habits that surround us in our everyday lives; from the ubiquitous flight path of mosquitos or the neurological grid of perception to almost superstitious paranoia surrounding invisible transmission of germs and viruses between us or the oblique tracks of migration and dispersal, belonging and difference.

This collection of moving image works by UK artists has been curated and presented in collaboration with videoclub, a leading UK agency for artists working in moving image. Artists included are boredomresearch, Suki Chan, Anne Haaning, Lyndsay Mann, Ursula Mayer, Naheed Raza and Louise K Wilson.

Admission is free.

About Nick Ut

Huỳnh Công Út, known professionally as Nick Ut (born March 29, 1951) is a Vietnamese American photographer for the Associated Press (AP) who works out of Los Angeles. He won both the 1973 Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography and the 1973 World Press Photo of the Year for "The Terror of War", depicting children in flight from a napalm bombing. In particular, his best-known photo features a naked 9-year-old girl, Phan Thị Kim Phúc, running toward the camera from a South Vietnamese napalm attack on North Vietnamese troops at the Trảng Bàng village during the Vietnam War. On the 40th anniversary of that Pulitzer Prize-winning photo in September 2012, Ut became the third person inducted by the Leica Hall of Fame for his contributions to photojournalism.
