Students from the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) are hosting Medialogue: Metamorphoses, an exhibition of original works by graduating students from the School's Master of Fine Arts in Creative Media, Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Creative Media and Associate of Arts in Media Technology. The exhibition is open to the public and runs from today to 2 July on campus.

The main theme behind Medialogue: Metamorphoses is to visualize the process of student learning, thinking, working, growing and sharing. Visitors to the exhibition will be enveloped in a maze of creativity woven by contemporary and upcoming media, from multiple-angle projections, interactive mixed-media installations, automated digital artwork, state-of-the-art photography, animation, and narrative and experimental video.

Ms Sam Yiu Sheung-yee, a 2006 graduate of the School and the project manager working on the graduation show, said she treasured making friends

in the School with similar dreams, ambitions and artistic vision to hers. "The work in the exhibition embraces much more than what is presented in front of you. There are also the memories, the processes we have been through and the help we get from each other," she said.

The opening ceremony was held on 24 June and officiated by Ms Ada Wong Ying-kay JP, Chair of Wanchai District Council, and Professor James Moy, Dean of the School.

CityU is committed to nurturing cutting-edge creative media experts, according to Professor Moy. "The School emphasizes learning through small classes in order to fully equip our students with the capacity to integrate theory, practice, technology and the arts," he said.

Ms Wong said she supported the development of Hong Kong's media industry and she offered words of encouragement to the graduating students. "Creativity is more than simply skills and techniques. We should learn to be more creative through observation and thinking, while experience adds value," Ms Wong said.

Medialogue: Metamorphoses is being held in the Multi-purpose Room in the Amenities Building at CityU and will be on display from 15 to 23 July at the Sun Arcade at Tsimshatsui, Kowloon.
