Wish You Were Here
Wish You Were Here 回音壁
Originally, Wish You Were Here was inspired by the ancient Temple of Heaven, which is a traditional site for the ritual and praying for the good of the community. It is also famous for its circular surrounding structure, Echo Wall. Small whispers are able to bounce across the yard to reach the other side. This immersive experience can be recreated with virtual reality (VR). The VR part of the project has expanded and captured the artist’s own living space and his surrounding city spaces using a 360 degree camera. An echo is suspended and moves through space separated from its original origin and this work reflects the artists feeling of floating in two different cultures.
