來自台灣的英國皇家藝術學院畢業生廖人暉,受邀於倫敦維多利亞與艾伯特博物館表演作品「The Self Portrait Machine Projec /自畫像機計劃」。

2009年畢業於Royal College of Art (RCA)的年輕設計師廖人暉,受邀至倫敦知名博物館Victoria &Albert Museum (V&A)為該館最新的數位藝術展覽-Decode做周末作品演出。他表示這次受邀為V&A表演的設計,是他於去年在RCA畢業的藝術創作- The Self Portrait Machine Project/自畫像機計劃,該計劃去年九月也曾受邀於倫敦設計週展示。此計劃是一個從人與機器互動合作自畫像的方式,讓參觀者體會與思考人類與工業化社會之間的緊密合作關係是如何的塑造了我們的意識與生活,甚至是影響了理論中應該最原創並完整的個人自我意識。

 

廖人暉表示該表演機會是非常幸運且難得的機會,能夠在建立超過一個半世紀的 V&A表演,更難能可貴的是,博物館願意提供雕塑藝術走廊作為期三天的表演場地,讓參觀者能在博物館收藏的文藝復興期中大理石雕像群中,與十分現代且機械感的自畫像機互動。如此珍貴的場地,不僅能提供跨越數百年時空與文明演進的想像,並藉此人們與藝術互動,刺激人們對於自身存在意義的探究。

 

展覽地點Victory and Albert Museum, Sculpture Gallery 22.

時間:二月26/ 27/ 28/ 26日:6.30pm-10pm, 27/28日: 10.30a m-5.40pm.

Dear Cultural Societies of UAL
Please pass this email onto any one you think that would be able to help.
I am a London based installation artist and a Fine Art student at Central Saint Martin’s College.
I’m currently looking for film makers across the globe to film footage of ‘pedestrian and crossings’ from other countries. These will contribute towards a ‘Global Traffic Light’ I am producing as public Art event happening across the centre of London during March 2010.
Please visit my blog to see the development of the project
http://traffic-art.blogspot.com
                             
The event is called ‘Ready, Steady, Global’ and aims to bring awareness to the westernisation of developing countries; during the event I will be raising funds for ‘Action for Children’ campaign against Child Neglect.  Please visit http://www.actionforchildren.org.uk to find out more.
It would be greatly appreciated it you were able to film five to ten minutes footage of pedestrian crossing’s in your country, I will pay for all expense and send you a copy of the final event in London.
The Global traffic light will aim to cause people think twice about the development of the world before crossing the road. The ‘Global Traffic Light’ will timed to be in sync with the real traffic lights, and will change colour as to indicate to people when to cross the road.
I hope the project sounds interesting to you,
Please feel free to contact me for more info on: 0044+(0)7503314845, koconnell20@googlemail.com
Kindest regards                                    
Kerrie O’Connell (Stampa-Art)

我來英學生應隨時注意個人安全,在英期間如發生意外事故,應即請同學、友人、校方或警方人員就近給予立即之協助,或撥打本處緊急電話。

近兩年來英國經濟情況不佳,我來英學生穿著、舉止、消費方式,有時無端引發無業/無聊英人側目。日前一位來英訪友之年輕女學生,單獨一人於下午時間,在某市區河邊散步,遭不明年輕白人男子持尖刀亂剌殺傷,該男子即遭路人與警方扭送法庭,以蓄意謀殺人、搶奪重罪起訴,受害人經送醫急救後出院。但身上、脖子、臉部傷痕累累,財物損失不貲。

本處再度呼籲來英年輕學子,尤其女同學上課、課外外出、參訪活動均應集體進行,或至少與友人同行,不可單獨行動。身上不帶鉅額現金、現金應存入銀行,避免單身前往酒吧,不搭乘陌生人車,夜間不到人少之處所,治安不佳地區尤應避免深夜前往。

一旦發生意外事故,特別注意證據之保全不可破壞現場,並應立即報警處理,如有語言困難,可洽請房東或學校人員就近給予立即之協助,或撥打本處緊急電話。

來英後應即向國內家人報平安,並告知住宿住址、屋主姓名、電話,並應查察住家學校附近警察電話與地址。與寄宿家庭保持良好互動,自已亦應注意住處門窗是否牢靠,門鎖是否齊全,若有疑慮應通知學校人員,並即要求房東改善。

來英遊學應選信譽可靠之遊學中心安排學校宿舍,倘需借住寄宿家庭,則應注意人身及財務安全。遊學者並應到領務局網站進入各地區暨各國旅遊資訊網頁,詳讀英國旅遊資訊http://www.boca.gov.tw/content.asp?CuItem=867&mp=1。

行前請上領務局「旅外國人動態登錄」網頁輸入英國聯絡資料,並隨身攜帶領務局「出國旅行安全實用手冊」及駐英國代表處24小時急難救助電話:(002-44-7768-938765),及駐愛丁堡辦事處24小時急難救助電話:(002-44-7900-990385),以便駐處可給予及時之協助。

英國內政部公布將於3月3日起從嚴核發學生簽證

英內政部2月10日公布外國留學生簽證將從嚴核發(Tougher rules for foreign students),並明定自3月3日起開始實施新規定,其要點如下:

(一)須具相當於GCSE標準(即英國一般高中畢業生)之程度始得來英就讀語文課程。
(二)須具相當於GCSE標準之程度始得在英就讀任何無學位之課程。
(三)就讀大學以下課程(即A level等級之高中課程),僅限就讀於英政府登記有案著有信譽之學校。
(四)就讀一般課程學生,在英工作時間減半為每週10小時。
(五)就讀6個月以下短期語文班課程之學生不得攜眷。
(六)就讀大學以下任何課程,眷屬不得工作。如發覺有打工情事一律遣送出境。(全文請自網址http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/newsarticles/2010/February/tougher-rules-for-foreign-stud)。

英內政部長Allan Johnson並親書面聲明(Written ministerial statement – Tier 4 student visas)表示以上規定將修正列入學生簽證Tier 4計點制內。自上年3月實施學生簽證Tier 4計點制之後,英國已由原先4000餘所招生學校,限縮2000餘所,減縮近一半左右。本年夏季以前將設置英語測驗中心,通過測驗才可列入Tier 4計點。落實以英文能力測驗及改善Tier 4計點標準,使正常來英學生專致於就學杜絕假學生真打工。

未來我學子來英留學應注意:
(一)以往國內遊學中心,以免簽來英邊遊學邊找學校,找到學校回台之後再申請學生簽證。以後沒有相當GCSE之英文程度,無法取得學生簽證(不能就讀語文班亦不可以就讀無學位之課程)。
(二)我學生來英每週打工只能10小時以內,如有違反即被遣返。

Taiwan once created an “economic miracle” that aroused the admiration of the world, and now our 3C products are sold throughout the globe. For this reason, the impression of Taiwan in the minds of all too many people is that of a technologically advanced “industrial island” or “island of technology.” After a traveler arrives in Taiwan, however, he or she will discover that this island nurtures a wide array of tourism and ecological resources, a diversity of traditional folk customs, a rich culture, modern arts, and fantastic food. In short, they discover that Taiwan is “beyond their expectations.” Taiwan was first known to the West as Ilha Formosa, or Beautiful Island. And with good reason. We have more than 200 mountains that soar above 3,000 meters in height, and our unique geology and topography have created countless arresting landscapes and alluring coastal scenes. Geographically, Taiwan is situated at the point where the Asian continental shelf meets the vast Pacific Ocean, providing it with an unparalleled ecological diversity and a huge number of plant and animal species concentrated in a relatively small place—perfect for ecotourism. Taiwan has world-class natural landscapes such as the awesome Taroko Gorge; it is the repository of true Chinese culture; its National Palace Museum is listed as one of the five top museums in the world; it has once the world’s tallest certified building in Taipei 101; and it has the highest mountain in Northeast Asia, Yushan or Jade Mountain. We also have some of the friendliest people in the world, 24-hour bookstores and convenience shops, and bustling night markets—all of which imprint indelible memories in the minds of visitors. And Taiwan offers a year-long series of exciting festivals such as the Lantern Festival, the Mazu (Goddess of the Sea) Culture Festival, Ghost Festival, aborigine harvest festivals, and countless others. These events provide countless opportunities for joyful participation, and infinite chances to learn about Taiwan’s religious observances and living practices. If you like culture, Taiwan is the perfect destination for you! Everybody knows that Taiwan is a gourmet’s paradise, with the finest of Chinese cuisine, the booming development of foreign restaurants, and unique dining opportunities in establishments serving local Taiwanese snacks, Hakka dishes, aborigine banquets, and night-market foods, as well as exquisite international dining in five-star hotels. Whatever your preference and budget, Taiwan will easily satisfy your taste buds. We also have the advantage of convenient transportation and an excellent travel environment that you will want to enjoy again and again. On behalf of the Taiwan Tourism Bureau, I wish you a safe and happy visit to our Beautiful Island! Janice Seh-Jen Lai Director General Tourism Bureau, MOTC, R.O.C.
