Contemporary artist Mak Ying Tung 2 recently participated in the virtual residency “Leave Your Body” hosted by Videotage. As part of the project, Mak 2 explored, altered, and built on a Minecraft simulation of Cattle Depot Artist Village while conversing with curator and host, Kyle Chung.
Within the virtual site, Mak 2 accidentally dug a hole that broke the barriers of the simulation. Visitors become disoriented as they enter what appears to be a hole torn in the sky. Mak 2 then added water to the hole, creating what she calls a “Grant Hole”. Objects look as if they are being baptized as they submerge in the water and disappear through the hole.
