"One has to be conscious of what one’s appropriating" — Tristan Lim

In this hypnotic looped video, clips from Singaporean television commercials are datamoshed together with 3D models to form a lone subject, oscillating between fragmented identities. The continuously transforming bodies—glitched and pixellated yet occasionally familiar—become hollow vessels for the viewer’s own associations, distorting our perception of the media we encounter everyday.

Such is the work of Tristan Lim, who created Hollowing (2018) to explore behaviours of consumers as a result of media desensitisation. Before displaying his work at the upcoming exhibition — Technology in Art — held at Singapore-based gallery Supernormal, we catch up with the artist who's also pursuing fine arts in college.
