The exhibition Digital Descending comprises video installations, sculptures, a computer game and the brand-new major work DOKU – 6 Realms of Reincarnation. The exhibition takes the form of a vast, flashing, hyper-stimulating techno-world in which a twenty-five metre alien – an inflatable head with Lu Yang’s face and hair like tentacles – spreads out as if in a huge gaming mothership to lead us into the world created by the artist. A fictional, virtual parallel realm populated by monsters, gods, demons, superheroes, manga characters and not least Lu Yang’s own genderless avatar that zaps across times and places within a teeming video game-like universe.
