Deng Yueyao – Artist Statement

Hi, I am Deng Yueyao! I created this hypertext story called “A Land Without Misery” which depicts an imaginary scenario- a young girl chatted with a stranger on an unknown website. The audience can figure out the development of the story by clicking around the picture.

I set short audio that announces the end of the journey, but it is an open ending story. From my perspective, this work is designed to help people see things from different angles. I hope people can take a minute to imagine how does their life looks like if they are a plant, a cat, or a unicorn. In doing so, people can have a relax after busy work, or even get some inspiration on how to solve the problems they meet.
