The First BMW Art Journey Winner
Samson Young, winner of the first BMW Art Journey, has completed his journey. His project for the inaugural BMW Art Journey, titled For Whom the Bell Tolls: A Journey Into the Sonic History of Conflict, was developed based on the Hong Kong-based artist’s longstanding fascination with military technology and his training as a composer. His goal was to record iconic bells in various locations, producing images, texts, and a musical composition on the basis of his first-hand impressions. "I am, naturally, thrilled to be able to make this journey happen," Samson said about his new start. "The BMW Art Journey is a real luxury in that it facilitates the research and the fieldwork - the drifting that drives the work - that is indispensable to the outcome of the creative process."
