The Last Statues
"The Last Statues" created an experience with the expansion of mass culture, and the vulgar quality of statues and monuments. Audiences can be evoked with the spatialized sound effects, and questioning about importance is whether these statues truly exist in the virtual space, and, if so, whether there are any affective changes imposed on the audience when they experience the statues in physical versus virtual spaces.
The Last Statues is a series meant to explore the use of the existed statues and their relations, as well as, the ideologies of the statues and whether or not they constitute a “visual hypertext” experience in a virtual space. I anticipate this series to be a collection of contradictory dualities: simultaneously artificial and, yet, deeply real; both high-tech and off the earth; human and mystically divine.
