The Drifting Stages is a project developed as part of the online group exhibition Dreamspace curated by Sophie Kahn, which brings together work by thirteen artists working with 3D animation. The works in the exhibition link conscious, subconscious, architectural and digital rendering spaces. Wang’s work in the exhibition is based on the artist’s experimental 3D animation series of the same name.
The Drifting Stages is a fictional and unfinished virtual apartment. It is constructed using common building material and random digital files from the artist’s 3D project folders. When the viewer enters the work, the virtual space repetitively recites a line of texts using Google Translator, it attempts to sell this virtual apartment to the viewer endlessly.
The Drifting Stages looks at the relationship between physical and digital space and at how these realms are mediated, their presentation shaped, by algorithmically underpinned sales and marketing tactics.
