CIAC Talks

New CIAC Talks episode is dedicated to Visual Arts and Experimentation


The third episode of CIAC Talks Bangkok is now available on the Youtube channel CIACmedia and has as the main theme “Visual Arts, experimentation, and practice”. Meet Nat Setthana, a Thai visual artist currently based in Finland.

Nat Setthana holds a degree in Communication Design and a master’s degree in Visual Communication from the School of Architecture and Design (SoA+D), King Mongkut University of Technology, Thonburi (KMUTT). Through immersive installations, audiovisual and multimedia experiences, her practice focuses on the experimentation of photographic installations and moving images. The creation of Confabulation at the corner (2023), The Curtain Appears (2022) and Curatorial Relationship (2020) are discussed on this episode.

CIAC Talks Bangkok was recorded through the Postgraduate Program in Design at the Jacob Jensen Design Office/KMUTT Knowledge Exchange for Innovation Center (KX) in Bangkok, Thailand.  The series was a collaboration between the CIAC/UAlg audiovisual team and SoA+D/KMUTT.  The interviews were produced and conducted by journalist, multimedia creator, FCT-CIAC research fellow, and Digital Media-Art Ph.D. student Juliana Wexel, under the supervision of the creator and coordinator of CIAC Talks Bangkok, Mirian Tavares.

All participants in the CIAC Talks Bangkok season are closely associated with SoA+D as professors, visiting artists, and alumni, invited by one of the scientific coordinators of Cultural Adventures, Nigel Power (SoA+D/KMUTT).

  The upcoming episodes of the CIAC Talks Bangkok series will feature interviews with Eiji Sumi, a Japanese artist and lighting designer based in Bangkok; Unchalee Anantawat, a Thai graphic designer and creator of the Speedy Grandma project.

This initiative is part of the ongoing scientific and artistic research project, Cultural Adventures. The project establishes interactions between Faro and Bangkok, exploring historical, contemporary, cultural, documentary, fictional, factual, and symbolic relationships between two distinct cultural contexts. Cultural Adventures is developed by CIAC in collaboration with the School of Architecture and Design at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (SoA+D), in the areas of visual communication and digital art, and is scientifically coordinated by Bruno Mendes da Silva and Nigel Power.

This work is funded by National Funds through FCT – Foundation for Science and Technology, I.P., under the project UIDP/04019/2020.
