HEHE. intro

1.HEHE background / 背景介绍

2.Emoji List/ 呵呵vs微笑

3. Art statement

Hehe is a kind of expression product born in the Internet culture. My work is based on the “hehe” emoji and re-creation of the Internet culture. Because of the spread of “hehe” emoji kind like the virus, I am wandering to compose a virtual HEHE world.

呵呵是一种诞生在互联网文化下的表情产物。我这次的作品是以呵呵表情为基础,对网络文化进行的再创作。因为呵呵在大互联网的应用下如同一种病毒式的传播,我企图构造一个以呵呵为基本元素的虚拟世界。

4. ArtWork Interpretation / 作品介绍

I . interstellar HEHE / 穿越呵呵

insethe

Interstellar HEHE is an interface which connects to the HEHE World. According to the concept of movie Interstellar,  Protagonist enters the black hole and comes to the four-dimensional space from the three-dimensional space to send information to his daughter. I want to show a perspective to the audience of flying in the HEHE space.

星际呵呵,是一个进入呵呵世界的通道。根据星际穿越中的概念,主角通过了黑洞3维空间进入到4维空间去给他的女儿传递信息。星际呵呵,是带给观众一种视角,像是穿梭在呵呵架构的宇宙中。

II . Rubik HEHE / 魔方呵呵

Rubik HEHE is trying to develop a new possibility about to building a 3D HEHE world.

呵呵魔方是开展的一种新可能,对3d呵呵世界的构建。

III. Adam & EVE / 女娲伏羲

nvwafuxi

Adam and EVE HEHE. This piece I want to develop a HEHE history. For example, The animation movie Minions. There are lots of minions who follow the most powerful creatures in the earth such as the dinosaur and human. So I want to create a funny and ridiculous HEHE history. In west history regard, Adam and Eve were the origins of human beings. In Chinese history also has such a male and female figuration named Nvwa and Fuxi.

在这里我试图开展一个呵呵的历史,就如同“小黄人”(Minions)电影中的概念,小黄人是伴随了地球上物种的进程,而我的 呵呵 是伴随了人类互联网的进程,又企图有他们自己看似严肃又可笑的历史。选择了东西方都存在的神话概念,西方以亚当夏娃为人类的开端,而东方以女娲伏羲为上古人类的开端。这里模拟了中国女娲伏羲的人面蛇身形态

IV. "HEHECENTRIC"/ 向呵说

From the transition from ancient mythology to the ancient Greek period, people removed the curiosity from the gods to the vastness of the starry sky above the head. This piece I decide to conclude a “HEHEcentric” form the Geocentric and Heliocentric.

从上古神话时代过渡到古希腊时期,人们从对神明的敬畏转移到对头顶星空的浩瀚。这里是联系了 地心说(Geocentric)到日心说(Heliocentric),从而演化出在呵呵世界以“呵呵” 为万事万物的中心

V. "Leeuwenhehe"/ 列文呵呵

Ernest-Board-Leeuwenhoek-with-His-Microscope

Antonie Philips van Leeuwenhoek is commonly known as “the Father of Microbiology,” and one of the first microscopists and microbiologists. This piece I want to use an interactive way to invite the audience to click the HEHE emoji to split two more emojis which is to symbol the cells.

列文虎克,是人类历史上重要的生物学家,科学家。发明显微镜,观测到单细胞(animalcules)。这里通过交互方式,点击分裂呵呵来模拟,呵呵如同一种鲜活的细胞生命。

VI. NEON hehe/ 霓虹呵呵

bruce

 Neon HEHE is like a kind of signal to show contemporary human society. Also, I put Bruce Nauman’s artwork to reinforce this opinion.

这里借鉴了 Bruce Nauman 的作品。展示人类已经可以掌握科技和观念做各种形式的表达,是人类历史发展到当代的标志。

VII. HEHE SONG/ 呵呵之歌

HEHE song is to broaden the concept of building the HEHE world and to add elements of music. The vocal which I record is from the Google translation “hehehehehe…”

呵呵之歌,是想拓宽关于构建呵呵世界的概念,加入了音乐的元素。其中的人声来自于 谷歌翻译 的“hehehe…”

VII. HEHE Game/ 玩呵呵

a . Snake hehe / 呵呵蛇
Snake-2
b. flappy hehe / 呵呵小鸟

The inspiration for this piece is from the video game, such as the snake game and flappy bird. I use the HEHE emoji to replace the typical figuration to make a different feeling. 

这个两件的灵感来自与电子游戏,贪吃蛇和像素鸟,通过使用“呵呵” 表情代替游戏的经典形象来营造不同的感受。
