how to be an artist in minecraft.


A project developed during the residency in 2021 at Ender Gallery, which is an exhibition space and artist residency that exists inside the game

A retrospective text about the four exhibitions happened at Ender Gallery is published on BlackFlash Expanded
This project is an ongoing research during the residency, and manifested as a solo exhibition at the end of residency period. During her residency time, Huidi created replicas of her artist studio (both physically and in another video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons) and attempted to live a parallel artist life in Minecraft. Taking on the role of an artist-labourer in the game, she also kept a detailed log of her every activity on the server for the residency period, creating a visual data record or ledger for the increasingly overlapping contexts of play and labour in video games - as well as serving to concretize her labour as an artist.
