“A Fish Alive” is a scene of futility and absurdity. The dreamscape, while exploring the relationship between man and nature, also expresses an existential sense of going nowhere, of defeat and helplessness. The piece is a further exploration of Phua’s fascination with the relationship between digital and physical mediums.

In creating this image, Phua first sculpts the elements in VR, then paints over them digitally, before lighting and composing the image on 3D software.
