Muted Jiji | Interactive Installation  2018

     

    Muted Jiji ” is an interactive installation that is about a child who insists a moment of "conversation" - talking with the doll call "Jiji". When Jiji was gifted to me,  she/he/they have been brutally crusted: dented chest, no arms, one leg goes through the bottom part. In order to make a notice of such experience of Jiji, I sewed an arm for her, which has a button inside her hand, pushing the button will activate her "heart" to blink whenever there is any sound, and the only one leg will be the sword she carries on the back, with colored and shaped symbols of nonreturnable environmental/trauma effects below and above Jiji.

     

    Later Muted Jiji was exhibited in group show "Whisper 局部振动" in Mountain Store, Chengdu, China along with four other artists adjusted the topic about environmental/experiential effects to children throughout growing.
