KUALA LUMPUR, 25 December 2022 - Centered on the theme of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the iNYALA 2022 art exhibition showcased a total of 17 multidisciplinary digital artworks by an interdisciplinary group of industry professionals, including new media artists, music composers, architects as well as audio-visual, communications and creative specialists, as well as Digital Media program students from Dasein Academy of Art among other students from local universities and colleges in Malaysia.

In addition to the entries submitted by the students, the exhibition will feature works from both international and local artists such as Kaoru Tanaka, FabU and Jun Ong. A one-minute unique multimedia show curated by Kaoru Tanaka, FabU and LIE, involving all 17 art installations accompanied by sensuous sound, will be staged at the start of every hour to present an audio-visual experience which conveys the message of unlocking a world of beautiful possibilities when all interlinked SDGs are met.

“This year’s theme serves as the holding space for our audiences to pause and reflect on the development and progress our country undertook, particularly on SDGs, as we emerge from the pandemic. I hope the whole new format of iNYALA which dives into generative art will inspire dialogue and enable Malaysians to imagine different ways of thinking and doing to transform the world we live in,” Helios Loo, founder of iNYALA said.

Dasein Digital Media students Chin Jia Wei, Tey Yun Nee, Ting Ee Vern and Yeong Ke Xin, whose group project 'Heat Escape' won The Best Creativity and The Best New Media Art Awards at iNYALA 2022 Beyond Light New Media Art Competition.

Themed "Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), their art installation "Heat Escape" was on exhibit at Fahrenheit88 from 1 to 25 December 2022 and bagged a total of RM6000 cash prize and trophies from Helios Loo, founder of iNYALA and Chegne Eu Jin, the Assistant Marketing Manager of Fahrenheit88.

'Heat Escape' by Chin Jia Wei, Tey Yun Nee, Ting Ee Vern & Yeong Ke Xin is a project that uses anamorphic illusion (requiring the audience to stand at a specific distance for best viewing) and supportive motion on other sides of a cube screen. Based on audio-visual data of man-made disasters, 'Heat Escape' transports us to the disaster scene for the audience to reflect on where our planet will head next. The conceptual sphere in an anamorphic view symbolizes our planet earth while the changing shapes and elements on it represent man-made hazards – Deforestation, Air Pollution, and Water Pollution, that ultimately cause global warming. As our plane finds its way to recover and humans continue the exploitation, the loop will never end, and the extinction of our planet and human beings will be inevitable.
