Experiments: Void Mirror
Institute of Contemporary Arts
July 2022
Erica, dir. Wei-Chia Wu, Taiwan 2021, 5 min.


A learning algorithm hallucinates flowers while Andra8 lives a solitary life in the virtual void. Automated sensory enhancement reveals the prevalence and proliferation of data. These works confront our interaction with (and perception of) new technologies, acknowledging the digital realm as a reality.

Exploring the paradoxes and rules within the online wellness movement and artificial ecologies, these shorts overlay archive, sonic landscapes and digital materials. In a strand that always champions innovative visual forms of storytelling, we select new work from artist Alison Nguyen (My Favourite Software is Being Here) and Wei-Chia Wu (Erica).
