Sansan Gallery Hop is another compelling installment in the Sansan's Digital Saga collection by Liao Yibai. This artwork exemplifies the transformative nature of virtual gallery showcases, presenting a revolutionary art-viewing experience unique to digital animation. From the spectacle of a disintegrating colossal rock to the whimsical float of Sansan, this dynamic representation in a virtual space evokes a range of emotions, akin to the fervor of school students entering a Chelsea gallery. Through meticulous algorithms and months of dedication, Yibai presents an experience that challenges traditional exhibits, adding a fresh perspective to art viewing.
The gallery is the artist's stage, where they communicate directly with the audience through their artwork and a place that lets the market brutally examine the artists' explorations and struggles.
The digital virtual gallery exhibition method also has this function, perhaps more rapidly, completely opening a new chapter.
This film explores not only the interpretation of animated characters but also the exhibition methods of virtual galleries, virtual museums, and museums, providing a new experience for people to view and communicate art. This is something that can be achieved with digital animation but cannot be accomplished in physical exhibitions, or to put it more vividly, it is more dazzling and has started to influence the art market.
Since it is a digital virtual exhibition, it must have virtual characteristics and the characteristics of virtual display. For example, a giant rock that is disintegrating, the animated character Sansan turning upside down in mid-air, like a group of middle school students entering a Chelsea gallery after class, they are delighted, confused, or mischievous; in short, an interaction with the artwork begins, and the displayed artwork in the virtual museum space is also dynamic, offering a completely different experience from physical exhibitions. I used my understanding and algorithms in my hands, rendered and formed it for several months, and then presented it to the audience. - Liao Yibai
