High Muck-a-Muck: Playing Chinese explores the narratives and tensions of historical and contemporary Chinese immigration to Canada. The project is both an interactive installation and an interactive website. Accompanying the installation and embedded within the website are eight videopoems. The piece is a result of a collaboration between eleven writers, artists and programmers and was created over three years from 2011–2014. The installation received its first public exhibition at Oxygen Art Centre in Nelson, BC in July, 2014. The digital work was created in HTML 5. The three aspects of the project – videos, interactive installation and website – can be exhibited together or in discrete parts. (source: ELO 2015 catalog)
