“The Liminality in the Digital Art” Artist Lecture by Snow Yunxue Fu in the Merz Akademie “Frontiers of Animation” Program
April 2021

How does the concept of liminality and liminoid play in contemporary digital art? The word liminal is often used to discuss the sublime within digital space and the VR experience, conjuring up notions of time, space, and perception, and echoing the experience of the sublime in nature. Working primarily with 3D animation software, Fu creates scenes of experimental abstraction that translate the concept of liminality into the digital experience. Within it, the viewers are offered an encounter to reflect on our response to the simultaneously beautiful and overwhelming artifice of the techno-sublime.
