On view in the exhibition is Hung’s The Hallway of City No.1, which features historic architecture in the city as well as its surrounding street blocks and urbanscape that encompass both the old and the new. The Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei sits in a prime area in Taipei City. The museum’s building has undergone various changes evolving from being a school, to the municipal hall, to a modern museum, and witnessed nearly a century of Taipei’s history, carrying cultural connotations related to its surrounding community, different social groups and the society. Today, one can find these historic traces not only on the time-honored architecture but also in its nearby street blocks.
Hung uses 3D scanning technology to preserve real urban images whiles surveying the intermediate zones connecting buildings and the city to create a hallway of time informed by characteristics of the place, the present time and the memories of the streets. Due to changes occurring in the city’s street blocks, the society has been constantly changing, immersing both groups and individuals in a rapidly changing network. The work uses the architecture of MOCA Taipei as an indicator and looks at the urban transformation that has taken place in the surrounding street blocks. Through gathering and constructing the appearances of contemporary street blocks, this work reverses how the city looks and architecturally converts it into an enormous social space. The collective network merges with extending paths, just like the connection and co-construction created by architectural hallways

Hung Yu-Hao was born in Taipei in 1989. His art practice focuses on the virtual and real expression of multimedia. Basing his works on long-term observation of urbanscape and projecting social cognition and collective, fluid gazing experience in ordinary space, he adopts aerial filming, 3D scanning and virtual reality to create his works with an attempt to understand individual’s awareness of time and explore the varying sense of place perceived by local communities.
