Ziynag Wu   The last subway  2016  Color digital video with sound 


The animated video The Last Subway follows the narrative of a fictitious video game protagonist ZiyangMon (referring to Pokémon Go) who transforms into a live person. Featuring a late-night subway where a series of absurd and carnivalesque stories take place, the viewer travels between mock CCTV newscasts, the Japanese pop music video Pen Pineapple Apple Pen, virtual reality footage, and a constructed subway station Los Jing (A virtual city in the combination of Los Angeles and Beijing); shifting between levels of reality like a video game. The work hints at how the virtual world increasingly influences human consciousness on both a macro and micro scale in our highly globalized and digitized society.
