Producing a Dysfunctional Relationship (on my website)
Along with the progress of writing my artist statement, a sentence came out: “She seeks answers/questions (??) by producing a dysfunctional relationship between xx and pseudo-xx.” I have not yet know which word to put for xx, but I think “producing a dysfunctional relationship” is an honest understanding of my own practice. So I design my website based on the following principles:
- It divides the screen into two parts, and the visitors cannot interact with both parts at the same time, nor find an obvious connection between each other.
- Only one page unless a new tab is consciously required by the viewer.
- Easy for me to edit, upload.
So I embed my tree-structure based index into my website. The following video demonstrates how it works:
00:00-00:13, search bar allows me and visitors quickly locate a work or any other information
00:13-00:27, I am editing at backstage. I add a URL to provide detail information.
00:27-00:52, Automatically syncs to my published website in 1 second. Just like a view only shared google doc. And now visitors can click to view the full project.
00:52-01:10, A home button to the homepage. Yu Yaoyao is pure text-based section.
01:10-01:37, Oayoay Uy is likely a (moving) image-based section which I have not yet think about the content and the display structure thoroughly. The big question —
Is it a view from the window of Yu Yaoyao or a mirrored reflection?
