The Illusion that is Reality

The Illusion that is Reality explores the phenomenon of virtualisation, which is often referred to as ‘blended reality’. It describes the time and space that allows a person to experience different realities, which in Jang’s case, is explored through virtual layers employing mobile technologies.

Jang’s work encapsulates the process of virtualisation and how it exceeds the limits of our physical world by creating another dimension for individuals to experience. This transition into a new dimension, an unconscious world, opens the possibility to travel into the world of dreams and imagination.

Jang uses her body to map the city area by undertaking a series of walks over a period of several months. Her routes are then reviewed and processed through Google maps and translated into a series of scratch holograms, an analogue technique of drawing on aluminium to make representations through light diffraction, reflection and interference. By allowing the elusive, moving effects of the scratch holograms and the line drawings in aluminium to co-exist, Jang balances the modalities of actual and virtual.
