In Web Idol, I created an interactive video installation with a game engine. A “Grass Mud Horse” (which is the most famous virtual Idol on Chinese internet) is virtually performed in the interactive game environment. The virtual space is constituted and ornamented by recent internet catchwords and slogans and burning scaffolding.
In conversation with the interactive video, a real Grass Mud Horse was performing on the street simultaneously with the video in the exhibition space. Coupons were given out for taking pictures with the Grass Mud Horse, and photos were distributed on the internet.
