Soft Screen, 2020

 

30.5 x 26 x 7.5 cm

LCD Screen, 3D Print, Acrylic box, Monitor Controller, Nylon (Synthetic Fiber)

In the current state of physical distance blockade, I can only receive moods from my family through the screen. At this moment, the screen is no longer hard, it seems fluid and soft. I hand-maded about 30,000 tiny, wool-like synthetic fiber at the bottom of the work, which took me about 31 hours. Because my grandmother knitted sweaters for me when I was a child, this soft texture gave me a sense of security and further deepened the emotional connection. A part of the object was 3D printed by me, and it was connected with the image on the 2D screen to become a one-piece sculpture, just like the emotion flowing out of the screen.
