Taiwanese photographer and digital artist Lin Guan-ming (林冠名) will present his perspective of the all-encompassing ocean in a digital exhibition titled "Boundless Sea” at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts from Aug. 23 to Nov. 9.
"Taiwan, other than Taiwan, is all sea,” Lin noted in his artist's statement. Hence, to a Taiwanese native, his or her world would extend no further than the place where water meets land. Moreover, the undulating waves hold steadfast to their rolling nature, never straying from routine, thus maintaining the illusion of a timeless ocean.
Using a 360-degree projector, Lin has created an environment that allows visitors to be digitally submerged by the sea. The footage is complied from photographs of coastlines and distant waves that the artist took over the course of 6 years, and the effect is mesmerizing and free from time reference.
"Boundless Sea” is part of the 2014 Digital Art Creation Competition Program held by the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts to support and promote new artists specializing in digital and cross-sector art.
