The Whimsical Characters (ongoing)
3D Animations; Infinite Loop
Characters that exist “inbetween” are integral to my creations. The Whimsical Characters is an ongoing project. It relates to the affect lingering in the space of inbetweenness, and attends to the philosophies of posthumanism. In this body of works, a series of digital bodies reside in plasma screens as discarnate entities, indicating that they are beings of the virtual world. But they continuously attempt to affect and connect to the viewers through their emotional outbursts built upon dramatic motion-capture data. The coded recording of real human movements is enveloped in the polygonal virtual “bodies.” Their paradoxical forms lead to an imagination of subjectivities preserved in a complex array of ambiguous dimensions.
