Projected Video Installation, Animation, 2017
I bought these synthetic flowers from a thrift store. I was fascinated by the relationship among real, synthetic and animated flowers. For me, the synthetic flowers are models of real ones, their fake attribute plays the role as the first layer of simulation. Then, I projected colored shapes onto these synthetic flowers, this is another layer of simulation above the first one.
By animating the growing shadows and digital flowers, I intended to challenge viewer's existing spacial experience and bring them a meditating, poetic and uncanny moment.
