"Daughter ICE" is a long-term digital human art projects created by New Media Artist Snow Yunxue Fu. Utilizing 3D imaging techniques such as modeling and texturing, she “gives birth” to a virtual daughter as a digital human. "Daughter ICE" takes on both the physical and character resemblances of the artist herself and her mother, who is also an artist and educator, and has profoundly influenced Fu as a person, artist, and educator. Due to the global pandemic, like many other international families, Fu has not seen her family members in person for a long time. The making of the project "Daughter ICE" explores her deeper connection with her family in a virtual realm. The project allows Fu to dive into the implications of our digital selves as we experience intimacy across generational, familial, cultural, and continental lines.
