Re :: Circulation: a re-cycled pecha kucha, re-assembled by Ching-In Chen, explores unplugging from current systems of monetary exchange// a futuristic gift economy, where services (creations) are exchanged without the possibility of immediate or future rewards. This project re-circulates the “wealth” of other writers and artists (including Van Tran, Bhanu Kapil, Sylvia La, Noah Purifoy, Flora Kao, Thomas Matsuda, Myung Mi Kim, Chantala Kommanivanh, Pepón Osorio, Soyeon Cho, Kristin Naca, Chelsea Wait, Susu Pianchupattana, and the re-assembler’s past creations) by engaging in acts of alteration, collage, sampling, re-mixing, collaboration and re-purposing.
