Ziyu He is learning to be a human, living as a new media artist.
Her work is multidisciplinary, ranging from kinetic sculptures that digitally transport air movements from Antarctica; 3D work that sources video game avatars, fragmenting and pausing virtual deaths;a custom software that explores and challenges sexuality in the cyber age.
She is attracted to subjects that are unquantifiable, undefinable, by things that are invisible, subtle or beyond great boundaries, which then is she able to connect to larger archetypes,such as identity, sexuality, consumption or death.
Graduated from NYU Interactive Telecommunications Program in 2018, currently in New York. In resident at Laboratory from March to May 2019.

3D animation, stills
An ongoing series of 3d work that fragmentizes, pauses,
prolongs virtual deaths of avatars into stills or extreme slow-motion animations.
The work sources dying motions from video games, uses the artist’s 3D body scan,
perpetuating and manipulating the cycle of life and death.
