ART WORK/PROJECT NAME: METROPOLITAN TRIPLE GARDEN
In the 3D animated video Metropolitan Triangle Garden, classical sculptures in the museum participate in a destructive performance triggered by software glitches, distortions, and misused simulation, turning the space into a madhouse theater with both classical beauty and digital chaos. It attempts to connect the sense of space, history, turmoil, and transformation to the idea of technological sublime in a twisted way, breaking the restrictive association between advanced graphics technology and high-end cinema production, while attempting to put classical art into a contemporary digital aesthetic context.
