A scrolling landscape without beginning or end: Paeonia Drive is a 360 degree virtual space where the physical folds into the digital and horizons become unstitched. First conceived as a live performance and installation, for this edition artists Angela Goh and Su Yu Hsin have constructed a 360 degree virtual environment housing the digital components of the project, including 3D plants and objects, 3D scans of the performer’s bodies, text and hyperlinks to research materials. Rendering, capturing, translation and digitisation become processes on display in a world of digital relics from what would have been a live performance.
In this space between the physical and virtual, Paeonia Drive explores the screen-user interface as its own form of stage. The screen becomes a mirror where one’s own reflection lives on the surface of a virtual world beyond.
This collaboration between Sydney-based dancer and choreographer Angela Goh and Taiwanese artist and filmmaker Su Yu Hsin speaks at scales alternately intimate, social and planetary, zooming in and out on the hazy horizon of the future.
