Two-Dimensional Foil

I don't know if anyone else feels the same way as I do, that the only reason for being alive is simply due to being too curious about the future of this world. It's like watching a TV series you've been following for a long time and just can't wait to see its conclusion. So why not live a little longer? Just in case you might witness the end of this world.

From childhood to adulthood, my rich imagination has filled solitary moments with countless dramas, pondering themes like the end of the world. It's hard for one's imagination to surpass their own cognitive boundaries. Therefore, for a long time, influenced by many science fiction books and films, my imagination dwelled on scenarios like dinosaur-like catastrophes, human self-destruction, or alien invasions. It wasn't until I came across the novel "The Three-Body Problem," where the author, Liu Cixin, depicted a scenario—the dimensional strike—that transcended my understanding yet perfectly resonated with my aesthetic experience.

No military battles or wars—just a swift "cleansing" of weaker civilizations by higher ones using the "Two-Dimensional Foil." When it contacts our three-dimensional universe, one of its dimensions becomes twisted and curled, forcing the three-dimensional universe and all its matter to collapse into the two-dimensional universe, where they "melt" into an absolute plane deprived of the concept of volume and existing only in terms of length and area.This imagery has played out countless times in the theater of my mind. Therefore, I've decided to present my vision of the apocalypse in the form of a visual exhibition. To make the visual expression of this project more impactful and interactive, I've combined illustration, animation, and augmented reality (AR) technology. It's my attempt to embark on a new exploration of media.

I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity this project has provided. It's not just about the outcomes of the project, but more importantly, over the past year, I've had the chance to delve deep into topics that interest me and to experiment with and expand new media within the realm of illustration, such as AR, animation, and 3D printing. The birth of this project perfectly encapsulates my personal journey and attitude. I used to work as a financial analyst for nearly a decade, but three years ago, I decided to follow my passion for art and applied for an MFA in illustration, embarking on a new journey of exploration. From the gruesome depiction of human anatomy to the birth of the "Two-Dimensional Foil," these three years have truly embodied the essence of exploration.

The idea remains the same: I hope to live a little longer, to explore this world a bit more.
