Wushu, or Chinese martial arts, is at a crossroads: is it a sport? is it a performance art? or a system of self defense and combat? What may seem like contemporary questions are actually centuries-old tensions between martial arts practice and society.
For a virtual exhibition exploring wushu’s historical evolution, the surrounding enclosure will morph into different configurations, communicating these themes at a more visceral level. The video shows an early experiment of how the enclosure could morph from one state to another using Rhino and Grasshopper.
