Yam Lau: Scapeland II

by Andy Patton

YYZine, Mar. 2008, v. 8, no. 2

In this article the author discusses Yam Lau's Scapeland II, a computer-generated animation and video installation. According to the author, Scapeland II is difficult to categorize because it is a type of video work that is neither fiction nor documentary: "Somehow the virtual,...unreal space of computer animation mixes with the rough-edged actual world that video records. They seem to have merged, and to have become something new, a space without a name."
