Metropolitan Triangle Gardenis an experimental 3D animation, in which carefully preserved classical sculptures from the museum participate in a self-destructive performance triggered by software glitches, distortions, and misused simulation, turning the gallery space into a madhouse theatre with both classical beauty and digital chaos. The animation is an attempt to connect the sense of space, history, turmoil, and transformation to the idea of technological sublime.
Rui Hu is pronounced “Ray Who?” or “Hooray!” in the Eastern order. He is Chinese-born and currently based in New York. Working mostly with simulated computer graphics, video, and photography, he often takes the idea of system as the entry point. Recently he is interested in exploring alternative meanings of familiar objects and environments, playful misuse of computational graphics and simulation technology, and the blurred boundary between art and entertainment. He studied literature in China before finishing film school at NYU.
