Yuxiao Du: Dust
Yuxiao Du’s B.F.A. thesis exhibit, “Dust,” allows the viewer to explore a nightmare world of a Second Life sim created by the artist and her charcoal drawings. The exhibit takes the viewer from his or her real life environment to a new virtual dream realm, where all color becomes lost, and the only substance holding the world together is dust. Discover the inner psyche of the artist's six-year old self and her fears of losing her mother through the exploration of a cold, dreary, and seemingly empty space from which one cannot seem to escape.
