LAND-TA-MORPHOSIS First of the Trilogy: Spiritual Water 2 (Non-interactive Version)
With the help of 3D animation technology, the celebration of festive spirits in the best-known panoramic master piece “Riverside Scene at Ching Ming Festival” is brought to alive. Our exhibition continues the Sinomania by presenting 3 works of Chinese paintings in new technology with the first hit Spiritual Water 2 by Hong Kong Artist Wong Chung-Yu. The long-established spirit in Shuimo (ink and wash) painting and generative digital animating technology are merged, to imitate the everlasting flow of the ink waterfal. With the natural running and dripping of ink composed randomly by computer, the art piece brings us a striking visual experience.
