Yiyi Han is an interdisciplinary sculpture student in MICA who uses multiple media to create art works. She is interested in using space and sensors to sculpt certain state of mind and emotion. Meanwhile, she wishes to seek all the answers to the world through the process of making art works.
THE INVISIBLE BODY is inspired by the Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi’s dialectical thoughts on existence and inexistence. By using cameras and a projector as another perspective, Han creates another self on the screen to demonstrate how we can see ourselves in real time. She wonders, how often do we look for attention and reflections in others to receive a proof of existence and a sense of security? When the self sees a transparent reflection in the space with other people and objects imprinted upon it, we wonder what we have ignored about ourselves and our existence in the space.
Working on this project requires coding skills and knowledge of devices. It was intense in the beginning to set up all the devices and make sure they will work with each other at once. Thinking thoroughly and getting well prepared are the keys to go forward. Another important skill that requires is trouble shooting. It needs patience and time to solve the problems. After all, it was great to see what imagination comes true to life.
