3D Rendered Moving Image Installation
Cao Shu's installation "Sisyphus" is built with a computer graphics program and highlights the artist's fascination with the relationship between the visions of memory and virtual technology. Stories, rumours, scenarios, and technology-like visuals blend realism and falsehood.The technology opens up perceptions that were previously inaccessible to any medium. Memories of flashbacks to the artists childhood in China exist in a row of 25 frames and with no linear narrative. Thorough its title, Cao Shu describes memory as being like the myth of Sisyphus, who was condemned to repeat forever the same meaningless task of pushing a boulder up a mountain, only to see it roll down again.
