Avanlanche 2021

Working with 3D scanned models and particle simulation effects of the snowfall, Avalanche is a multi-channel 3D moving image work that illustrates the digital imaging version of the concept of “entropy”, originally from Land Art.

Fire Line Studies 2020

The wireframe rendering reveals the fire fluid’s 3D mesh structures, relating visually to other image study mediums such as drawing, painting, and photography. The lines, faces, and volumes within the frames are set up and simulated through the tools of topographical computer rendering, invoking imageries that could be perceived as fires in the woods.

“Fire Line Studies” is a post-photographic 3D moving piece that portraits the states of fire burning. The forest fire has been a destructive phenomenon that is also, unfortunately, a common occurrence in recent times. Whether caused by natural or human-made reasons, it could be rather a destructive and uncontrollable force. However, the bushes in the scenes of the virtual flames maintain their seemly unbreakable shapes, unlike the physical trees and forest that are easily ruined by the all-consuming fires.

Trench 2020

Trench is a virtual reality project that is set in a digitally simulated space resembling an abstracted oceanic environment not unlike the Mariana Trench. While diving deeper within the simulation, the participant approach’s various CGI marine-like objects, which will trigger natural and glitched phenomena that alter the digital experience. The glitching and abstraction of these objects and environment will be based on the visualization of data from environmental research.
