The Crossings 渡 is a 3D mapping projection project on a concrete landscape sculpture that merged my whole body, with a projection of seasons-changing animation that represents the changes that happen in life.
Inspired by the ancient Chinese landscape painting style, this work is a visual, aural, and olfactory interpretation of the Buddhist concept of pain and relief in the journey of life. Using the technique of 3D scanning, my own body was captured, broke down, and deformed into the shape of the landscape. The 3D model was used to generate physical simulation animation to represent four seasons, using different colors, forms, and dynamics to stimulates the audience’s imagination that is abstract, ancient, futuristic, and poetic.
This work is a continuation of my own exploration into the examination of traditional Chinese aesthetic and philosophy, by extracting, exploring, and extending the core elements within a contemporary discourse without being bound by the formal restraints of tradition.
