Yutong Jessie Zheng is an emerging multi-media artist who experiments with both digital and physical tools as vehicles for innovative storytelling. For this residency, she intends to instruct a story about our relationship with digitality with digital tools during the unprecedented pandemic quarantine.
“I learned some new digital software during the pandemic as a way to improve my artistic skills. During this process, I discovered a lot of fun and possibilities of digital tools for creating alternative worlds in Maya and Unity for example and shift my focus away from reality. Some people used to see virtual realities or games as escapism from reality and view it with somewhat a negative mindset. With the pandemic, this mindset seems to be changing which is really interesting to me.”
