It is commonly believed that meaning is formed before the signifying media are chosen, and that meaning can be represented by different media. However, while the same subject could be represented through various media (sculpture, installation, painting, and animations), the use of different media often helps to generate new meaning. Media is meaning. When the same subject is represented by a new media, new layers of meaning will emerge. The change of media creates changed new meanings. For this reason, re-presenting the representation of meaning in a new media leads to the rise of new meanings. In this workshop, the artist Ms Rose Wong who is currently doing International Residency in TWT Creative Precinct in St Leonards (NSW), will share her works and artistic practices and illustrate how a change of media has facilitated her creativity.
