Thickness of Calligraphy
"Thickness of Calligraphy" is an online virtual exhibition with the theme of "3D calligraphy". It can be accessed as World on VRChat.
This virtual exhibition is curated and created by Jessien Huang. It divides the artist Boyan‘s research into four stages, which are presented successively through a large number of works.
While these works are exhibited as research results, the exhibition also tells the story of tortuous research experiences. These experiences and works both have unique reference value and enlightening significance.

Jessien Huang studied Architecture during undergraduate and postgraduate period. When he was studying at UCL in London, he began to create with VR as medium. Based on years of architectural research and the study of “Human Perception of Space”, he invented a set of highly experimental and pioneering spatial narrative methods including a national patented algorithm named “Interactive Redirected Walking”.
Jessien’s VR works aim to explore the narrative language of Virtual Reality as a new medium. Here are some of his past VR works:
