VTV / 僵视

2017 - 2018
Mixc ART Shanghai

VTV is an installation that blurs the line between reality and fiction; in this case, transporting audience members to a world in which vampires walk the earth alongside humans. However, rather than portraying the undead as horrific demons and bloodthirsty monsters, VTV to humanize them by recontextualizing existing vampire media. The piece was ultimately comprised of the physical installation designed to replicate a living room including a CRT TV and bluetooth remote control, four videos that acted as looping “channels,” and a p5.js sketch that provided the “backend” to the TV interaction.

The installation was shown at the INFINITE: Dimensions in Digital Art and Beyond exhibition at “The Mixc ART Shanghai” as well as the Interactive Media Arts end of semester show.
