In Figment, rendered clouds and mountains, with their mediated counterparts, contemplate contemporary technological society’s relationship with the natural world. Layers of a metaphoric relationship with the moving images emerge – clouds are synonymous with digital culture, landscapes are realistically depicted stationary but are constructed. Lush CG mountainsides, with visual ties to my China hometown play on perception and desire for a relationship with nature; yet it is synthetic, a liminal realm that we experience but cannot touch. Figment offers an experience of the digital sublime, which overlaps with our perception of the digital, landscape, our relationship with each, and the fundamental questions that follow, peering into the nature of our existence. Figment is a moving image piece that is made in 3D software Maya.
