DIGITAL CALLIGRAFFITI is a community project which gives the chance to all social groups to freely share their messages, wishes and visions on burning issues of our society. It combines the traditional cultural technique of calligraphy and graffiti with the possibilities of urban media art and new technologies. DIGITAL CALLIGRAFFITI facilitates the communication between the individual and the whole and transforms walls and digital screens into a canvas of civic expression to build bridges of intercultural understanding and promoting diversities as the medium to bring us closer.

During the MICROWAVE INTERNATIONAL NEW MEDIA ARTS FESTIVAL 2019, the team want to use DIGITAL CALLIGRAFFITI as an open platform of solidarity with the challenging question: What Urban Media Art Can Do for Hongkong?

《數位書法塗鴉》是一項社區項目,旨在為所有社會團體在我們的社會上自由分享他們對於社會事件的信息、願望以及願景。項目結合傳統書法的技巧與當代塗鴉藝術,同時糅合城市媒體藝術與新科技,促進個人與群眾之間的溝通,也同時把牆壁和數位屏幕轉化成表達公民想法的畫布,以建立理解跨文化的橋樑,並推廣多樣性成為拉近人與人之間距離的媒介。

透過參與今届微波國際新媒體藝術節,團隊以《數位書法塗鴉》作為一個團結解決重要問題/挑戰的開放平台: 到底城市媒體藝術可以為香港這城市做些什麼?
