Digital art

Dreams are often regarded as God’s revelation on the fate of individuals, and they also represent one’s subconscious desires. Dreams are full of rich emotions and stream-of-consciousness (or stream-of-thought), becoming an excellent creative theme. Ambiguity is a digital media video work that visualizes the emotions in dreams. Using the generative functions of digital media, this work creates a unique visual language to present the dream, giving viewers an immersive experience in a dream-like, ethereal atmosphere. It conveys the artist’s pursuit and longing for the dream realm, with gorgeous, psychedelic images representing human profound emotions, in an ode to life.
