Artist’s statement

Once in a while you find yourself in an odd situation. You get into it by degrees and in the most natural way but, when you are right in the midst of it, you are suddenly astonished and ask yourself how in the world it all came about.

It’s been a long way down working on this project. To discover the nonexistent world you must be lost in the world of fog. Read more >

During his residency, Tzu-Huan Lin built a virtual utopia with participants from around the world, inviting people to take part in creating their own version of utopia in a collaborative space.

Tzu-Huan Lin, Operation Notes for Green Ceiling, 2021

Operation Notes for Green Ceiling is a short documentation of the virtual world that I created on Hubs platform, and notes that I wrote during its creation. The theme of the world and the notes are heavily rooted in the project, “Point Nemo” that I worked on during Vital Capacities residency. The notes aim to convey a meaningful story of finding a stable utopia in my mind, and imagine a fictional world with a green ceiling that can be keyed with anything I want. It’s a combination of documentary and fictional narrative that flips between the angles of fish, artificial satellite, and artist.
