Past Projects Miscellaneous
Arden Aki teamed up with Imaginary Machete Swinger - an artist collective based in both Tokyo and Hong Kong, to create an art installation conveying the theme of "Trial and Error". It premiered at PMQ in Central Hong Kong during the 1st to 9th of December 2018. The installation consisted of a cylindrical booth in which visitors enter, taking on the role of Othello in an attempt to discern the innocence or guilt of Desdemona for the charge of infidelity. Visitors could walk around the booth and relative to the position on which they stood, they were able to hear different music and voices delivering key lines from Shakespeare's Othello. In this way, IMS created a judicial trial influenced by Iago's manipulation and consequently the error of Othello's judgement - through the act of "trial and error" in testing out standpoints within the artwork.
Arden Aki, Jason Yap, and Charlie Shikazaki conceived of the idea.
Music and voice acting was provided by a variety of members from IMS, with Arden Aki composing half of Emilia's music, and acting as the voice of Cassio.
