Art Projects.

Red Yellow Blue

2018, Interactive Immersive Installation

 

This piece consists of three virtual scenes displayed in VR headsets placed in three separate spaces within the exhibition room. In each scene, the viewer is placed in specific locations--public bathroom, children's park, and hotel room, with a child. The seemingly childish and innocent but subtly eerie and sexual scenes confronts viewer to make an association usually perceived as shameful and prohibited--that of children with sexuality.

Me.

Rachel Li is a game designer and new media artist based in Brooklyn, New York. Always curious about how and why things work the way they do, she constantly seeks exciting ways to question boundaries and finds new forms of creative expression. Her work ranges from digital and analog games to VR/AR experiences, from interactive installations to alternative controllers. Outside of work, she grows green onions and reads about mythical creatures. 

Recently, Rachel has been experimenting with:

  • how the spatial design of a virtual space can evoke certain kinds of emotion in a viewer/player.

  • how by using alternative controllers can expand old categories of gameplay experiences and introduce more innovative and inclusive ways of interaction between the virtual and physical world.
