In this exhibit, Tan shows a decidedly unique understanding of refractivity. The project touches on the natural means, more importantly, a social phenomenon as well. In Chinese ideology, the phrase “refractivity” holds the dual meaning of 1) initiating an illusion & 2) leading towards social reality, with applications to psychological activities, including brain washing.
Additionally, the installation emphasizes social periods in China within “Cultural Revelation” & the “Great Leap Forward.” These “brains” are accompanied by 3D animation played on LCD monitors, while the faces bask in large vats of water. The audience is encouraged to interact with such installations by changing with the water level, light, animation & refractivity.
