Artist Chun Shao discusses her installation Silicone Love – Her Garden, in the Jack Straw New Media Gallery. Visitors will experience a sculptural fiction about an Internet-generated ghost, a metaphoric figure narrated through a series of video mapped kinetic sculptures. The work aims to search and research the poetics between sensuality and the pleasure of watching, which are inhabited and cultivated though the infrastructure of the Internet. This story-telling installation explores the feelings between familiar and uncanny, repulsive and desirable, historical and imaginary.
