Land of Illusion is a virtual world art project accomplished through cross-continental artists’ collaborations in cyberspace. It is intended to make social and cultural commentaries particularly through reinterpreting Chinese folkloric traditions. The work reflects on globalization’s impact on both the environment and the individual, and unveils layered personal and cultural identity markers. Focusing on the spiritually homeless struggling to preserve traditional values, it explores foreignness and displacement. Furthermore, Land of Illusion proposes solutions for preserving and  re-evaluating cultural heritage with digital art.
