Everybody Leaves When They Get The Chance (2024)

electronics, plastics, metal

'Everybody Leaves When They Get The Chance' is the first of the 'Kiki's Wonderful Little Worlds' series. This small box contains a simulated fish that swims within a small closed environment. While swimming, the electronics needed to simulate the fish are visible behind the foggy screen, emphasizing the closed environment of the simulation. Just like a fishtank, a simulation is limited to a closed environment

This work is part of the 'Kiki's Wonderful Little Worlds' series. This body of works reflects on the urge of escapism by portraying life as a simulation. I use the protagonist ‘Kiki’ as an avatar of myself who acts as a bridge between mundane reality and videogame fantasy. Every piece of the series is an application of the act of simulation and the urge for the character’s escapism. I wanted to reflect on the ‘fakeness’ of these procedural worlds by making the inside of each screen an intricate part of the work. The visuals remain as a shades of fantastical realms created by and for ‘Kiki’
