“A line is a contour of a lived experience, and when you can evolve the nature of that line, you can change your nature. Like a kind of awakening. In gestural, dimensional tools like the ones I’ve developed in VR, they become a part of my imagination you can inhabit; a real, remembered space.”
- Sougwen Chung
The solo show Virtual Ink’ showcases the figural fluid studies of Sougwen 愫君 Chung. It is part of an ongoing research practice exploring and expanding the boundaries of art and technology. Building a bespoke process in Virtual Reality custom software, the series is almost exclusively drawn in a simulated environment. The possibilities of drawing within the digital landscape extend traditional painting approaches with new spatial orientations. Every stroke of virtual ink is produced in three dimensions, rendering the work almost sculptural in its creation.
