數位藝術基金會今年首度開辦「前戲影展 Fest Yet-to-Come」，透過放映形式的展覽活動，讓觀眾看見臺灣新生代 VR 創作能量，激盪討論與交流。
The five VR artworks on view in “2022 Fest Yet-to-Come” are selected for the ingenious aesthetics and styles demonstrated by the young Taiwanese artists. The artworks also reflect the diverse experimentation in the virtual reality space and on the viewing experience attempted by the artists.
LIPs by Lin Pei-Ying presents a peculiar and vivid body-scape based on a female perspective, and it also uses ASMR sound effects to open up the audience’s extravisual sense. Through the explorative experience, thoughts about how the female body is gazed, deconstructed, desired or detested are redefined. Chamber 404 by Isabel Sun and Erin Guan takes place inside a bedroom setting, where a sense of intimacy is felt in the confined space, but it also feels quite suffocating. The work reflects on the endless algorithm-derived content that’s fed to people in the age of the Internet and the infinite digital junk around us, as it explores how people can go about identifying what is real and who they really are. An interesting work of well-thought-out format and style, When the Flowers Bloom by Wei Shiue-Ying and Ko Chia-Wen is an intriguing and well–executed interactive VR piece that invites the audience to explore an apocalyptic underground city, where they can search for hope and find a way out. LIMBOTOPIA in VR by Hsieh Wen-Yee, on the other hand, uses a minimal and surreal aesthetic to create a colossal and complex urban architecture design. Through the perspective of the deceased, the audience can pass through various borders and embark on a VR journey that’s spiritually reflective and immensely poetic. Last but not least, ALONE by Cheng Yi-Ting is inspired by life in the pandemic. With a haptic installation ingeniously incorporated, the audience is invited to reconsider the movements of temporality and spatiality, as well as the emotions they experience while being immersed in it.
The objective of the Digital Art Foundation is for “Fest Yet-to-Come” to act as a platform for young artists to showcase their creations. As the creative formats and expressions of virtual reality continue to develop and mature, we hope that these creative original artworks can open up more discussions and exchanges on VR art.
