CARRIE CHEN – PSALMS
DMA SOLO EXHIBITION
April 27, 2021, 5:00 pm
Psalms is an ongoing series currently composed of two VR works: Myth and Devotion.
Myth is a performance-activated VR experience that encompasses a sinofuturist reimagination of Chinese folk tradition and procedurally randomized digital deities, inspired by Peking opera and Asian mythologies.
Devotion is an immersive 360 video that considers the mediation and reversibility between human and the divine. Choreographed shifts in perspective aim to simulate power relations within the act of belief as well as the distance we hold from our own bodies.
This online show will premiere Devotion and present selected highlights of Myth.
