Moving with Container Art from Harbor to Harbors.

"bu dong zhongwen. Wo shi Tai guo ren!"

Throughout all my trip from Chiang Mai International airport to the container site in Kaohsiung Museum of Arts (, I repeated this sentence over and over when Taiwanese tried to talk to me in Chinese. Obviously, my face looks Chinese or Japanese.
People often get confused about where I come from when I travel abroad. It always takes a bit longer than normal at the immigration checkpoint, when officers look at my Thai passport and my face more than twice. This is why my students in Chiang Mai call me in Thai "Moi Inter" meaning international Chinese girl.

A hidden agenda that deems us morons

The folly and future of Thai cinema under military dictatorship

Earlier this month, I took part in a seminar at Government House to discuss the content of the new Film and Video Act, which has been drafted to replace the existing Film Act of 1930 that miraculously continues to be in place today

1 Euro=230HUF
To exchange at the airport they rate is butter but they you need to pay the service charge.
In the city, there are differences rate and no service charge.. The best rate I saw is around the fashion street “Vaci u.” around Deakter area.

PostHeaderIcon ไปกรุง

ดูเหมือนว่าฉันจะมีธุระไปเมืองกรุงทุก3เดือน แต่อย่างไงก็ตามก็มีคนต่างถิ่น รวมทั้งคนกรุงและคนต่างชาติ มาเยี่ยมเยือนฉัน ที่เชียงใหม่อยู่เสมอ จนไม่รู้สึกว่า "คิดถึงใครเป็นพิเศษ" เอาซะเลย คราวนี้ที่ไปเมืองกรุงมีเรื่องสองเรื่องที่ต้องทำให้สำเร็จ ทั้งสองเรื่องเป็นเรื่องที่ฉันลุ้น ก่อนเดินทางว่าจะลงเอยอย่างไร
เรื่องแรกคือ การแสดงงานศิลปะ กับเพื่อนศิลปินคนไทยกับฝรั่ง สถานที่ที่ใช้แสดงนั้น ฉันยังไม่เคยเห็นด้วยตาตนเอง เคยเห็นแต่ในรูป รูปที่ ทิน ทิน เพื่อนศิลปินคนที่จัดงานนี้เค้าส่งมาให้ ฉันก็จินตนาการไปเองส่วนหนึ่ง กับสถานที่ อีกส่วนหนึ่งค่อยไปว่ากันอีกทีตอนที่ฉันไปถึงแล้ว อันที่จริงหลังจากแสดงงานกลุ่มที่ชื่อ Platform: about installation แล้ว ฉันเคยเพ้อฝันไปว่า อยากได้สถานที่ประมาณนี่ สำหรับทำงานชุดใหม่ของฉัน แต่พอถึงเวลานี้จริงๆ ด้วยเวลา และ ทุน อันน้อยนิดที่ฉันมี ทำให้ฉันไม่สามารถทุ่มเทพลังงานมากเท่าที่ฉันคาดไว้ได้มากนั้น แต่ฉันก็อยากให้โอกาส อันนี้ ให้ตัวเองได้ปลดปล่อยการทดลองบางอย่าง ที่เคยท่วมท้นในหัวของฉันมาเกือบครึ่งปีนี้ ออกมาเป็นมาให้ผู้คนเห็นเสียที อีกเรื่องที่ฉันอยากรู้เห็นมากก็คือ ความเคลื่อนไหวของดนตรี และศิลปะ ความคิดเห็นต่างๆ ของคนในกลุ่มที่มารวมกันแสดงผลงานเหล่านี้

อีกเรื่องที่ทำให้ฉันปวดหัววิ่งไป วิ่งมา ออนไลน์คุยกับผู้คนอยู่เป็นบ้าเป็นบอ ตลอด 2-3 อาทิตย์ที่ผ่านมานี้ก็คือ การที่ฉันจะเดินทางไปร่วมสัมนา เวิค์กชอบ และแสดงงานศิลปะ ที่ประเทศ โรมาเนีย เดือนหน้านี้ เรื่องของเรื่อง มีอยู่ว่า สถานฑูตโรมาเนียที่กรุงเทพ ฝ่ายวีซ่า ปิดทำงาน 2 เดือน ทำให้ฉันเป็นเดือดเป็นร้อนต้องหาทางไปขอวีซ่าโรมาเนียในประเทศอื่น จนสรุปแล้วกับผู้ให้ทุนว่าจะไปทำวีซ่าที่เมืองบุดาเปส ประเทศฮังการี ซึ่งฉันต้องบินไปลงก่อนจะเดินทางเข้าโรมาเนียอยู่แล้ว ปัญหาแรกด่วนตอนนี้คือฉันต้องขอวีซ่าประเทศฮังการีให้ได้ก่อน ที่กรุงเทพนี้แหละ สาธุ ขอให้ผ่านฉลุย ด้วยเถอะ ที่ฉันกลัวก็เพราะ จดหมายเชิญทุกฉบับที่ฉันมีเขียนสนับสนุนการเดินทางไปโรมาเนียหมด แต่ไม่ได้ระบุชื่อฮังการีเลย พระเจ้าช่วย..

High Energy Constructs

990 North Hill Street, Suite # 180, in Los Angeles' Chinatown

Internal Mechanisms

July 28 – September 1, 2007

Semâ Bekirović
Laura Forman
Emilie Halpern
Jason Starr and Justin Hansch
Dhavid Streicher
Sutthirat Supaparinya
Kaari Upson
Louisa Van Leer

curated by Joseph Imhauser

Opening reception for the artists: Saturday, July 28, 2007 6 – 10 pm
High Energy Constructs is pleased to present Internal mechanisms - a group exhibition of contemporary artists working in Los Angeles; New Haven, Connecticut; Amsterdam; and Chang Mai, Thailand. Showcasing the work of eight artists working in a variety of media, the exhibition exposes the emotional and physical complexities that are encountered when artist's political beliefs shape their personal practices, both materially and conceptually. Discerning how the outside world influences our internal perceptions, and vice versa, the artists assembled here offer new mechanisms for how we view and shape the world around us: large or small, personal or political.
Internal Mechanisms features work by Semâ Bekirović, Laura Forman, Emilie Halpern, Jason Starr and Justin Hansch, Dhavid Streicher, Sutthirat Supaparinya, Kaari Upson, Louisa Van Leer, and is curated by Joseph Imhauser.

Letter from Thai Students in German

I've got this text from "Thai Students in German"
group and feel something... really sad to our freedom..
Media Arts Net
the cool site create from one of my media arts professor in Leipzig, prof. Dieter Daniels
textes are in german and english

«Media Art Net 1: An Overview of Media Art» is the first module published in the Net and is accompanied by this volume of text. This module will serve as a foundation for all later modules, and reacts at the same time to an additional paradox of mediation in the media: even those relevant websites that deal with media art still lacked up until now a comprehensive introduction to this subject. We thus see in the exemplary selection of materials and source texts as well the semantic links made by both authors as well as the database an important prerequisite for developing approaches to a curriculum on media art. Free access to these materials is a central aspect of the project. In terms of subject matter, ten introductory essays dedicated both to historical developments as well as interlinking references in terms of content are collected to an «overview.»

mixing things@Fah Thai Magazine

*Fah Thai Magazine is an English-language inflight magazine for Bangkok Airways:::


THE ESPRESSO MACHINES at Chiang Mai's 94 Co?ee are running full throttle when Angkrit Ajchariyasophon pulls up to our 9am appointment in a pick-up truck. I don't often associate conceptual artists with pick-ups - or morning meetings, for that matter - but just a few minutes into my conversation with Angkrit, it's obvious why he needs one. Loaded with sculptures that he aims to sell at the Night Bazaar after our meeting, the truck will get Angkrit back to his job managing his family's restaurant in Chiang Rai, 180km away.

That Angkrit's vehicle is as indispensable a tool as any element of his mixed palate says a lot about Thai artists of this generation, for whom balancing busy day-to-day schedules is the norm, for most emerging local artists are also full-time university lecturers or curators, or making money on the side selling T-shirts and stage-dressing events.

This multi-tasking is matched by an eagerness to engage new media. From Angkrit's "role-playing", to the "sound installations" of Sutthirat Supaparinya and 3-D putty paintings of Yuree Kensaku, contemporary Thai art - and its creators - are a mixed bag of forms and ideas. As Bangkok curator Th anavi Chotpradit explains, the new generation "are multi-disciplinary, can experiment and don't stick with one media - they're playful and more flexible".

Non-traditional media has a particularly warm glow to this group, often labelled "New Media" artists, a sub-genre of contemporary art defined by its willingness to incorporate non-traditional media such as video, digital and web.

"Young artists increasingly work on non-object-based art - not just because it's convenient (cheap, easy to carry or send), but it's also something about their mentalities," explains Thanavi.

It could well be a reflection of how vastly di?erent a cultural landscape these artists - who had come of age during the 1990s - grew up in, as compared to their predecessors, the thai modernists and neo-traditionalists.

It is certainly no surprise that such a wired, image-saturated place as Bangkok would produce creative minds fascinated by digital imaging, gadgetry and cyberspace.

However, one also has to look to the creative ferment in smaller cities like Chiang Mai, where a robust New Media department thrives at the city's university.

In the works of the six artists profiled here, one finds an ongoing dialogue with what it means to an artist; specifically, what it means to be a young, thai artist practising in the early 21st century.

Read on to discover their range of fascinating creations.
