project description version 08/05/2021

this project is an exploration of how to become artist in minecraft. On the one hand, as a sculptor who had almost no experience in Minecraft beforehand, the artist is using this project to explore the world of Minecraft and how it can act as a site/context for her current practice. On the other hand, this project intends to reflect upon why we need to be artists in Minecraft. What are the meanings, connatations, and implications of claiming the role of artist in the world of Minecraft? How do we as artists practicipate in the power game behind the games we are actually playing?this log is a public spreadshhet that shares how the artist (who is currently and mainly living in the tangible sensorial world we occupy with our bodies) explores and learns to be an artist in the video game Minecraft.the artist has also been working on a similar research-in-progress in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, https://xianghuidi.com/my-playbench-in-the-workgroundprofile/skin
