“Human existence is becoming more and more instrumentalised and alienated,” writes designer and illustrator Ziyao Lin. Limit Situation is set against a busy modern-day backdrop, defined by the information explosion on the internet, an accelerated pace of life and the impact of consumerism. Here, digital sculpture, VR and images come together to construct an experience of existential self-examination. Each face on a dice marked 1-6 leads to a symbolic situation, which can be experienced in VR scenes. “The abstract digital space is like a boundless region of the mind, and the six paradoxes reflect a human dilemma that is difficult to escape.”
