The Blue World (4min) presents the connection between virtual (3D) materialisation, reinterprets the tactile inspiration, and new space vision as a metaphor for how women artists have attempted to be independent of prescriptive gender role matters within their society (and in the art world). The Blue World combines soft and vivid tactile records of blue water surface with 3D objects based on egg shapes for various birds with various textures-rough, smooth, shiny, durable, and tender tactiles(feelings) that can be found from natural elements (wood, metal, ceramics, etc.) to add the feeling of nature and their contribution to our society and social movements.
Through the video, I want to raise the question of how 3D graphics with various textures virtually visualize a sense of touch and tactilities of objects and urge viewers to consider the idea of touch, objects, and the intention of such approaches. In contrast, the visual record of the blue water surface assembles all elements aesthetically.
