One Thousand & One Attempts to Be an Ocean by Yuyan Wang (Screening)
In One Thousand and One Attempts to Be an Ocean, Yuyan Wang creates a visual ocean brimming with deep emotions and a feeling of uncanniness. Wang’s vibrant and colorful video juxtaposes the monotony and superficiality of current internet iconography with the unexpected thrill of rediscovering the (un)known. It reflects on the experience of being unable to see the world with depth perception. Overall, these images may be seen as a mirror of the society of spectacle and an ecological and social critique of the inexorable entropy of our information societies—groundless waves we are all drowning in. What one hears is the question.
