Times Square is set to dazzle with a captivating new Midnight Moment: Chun Hua Catherine Dong’s reimagining of the legendary Chinese folk heroine, Mulan. This innovative project draws inspiration from ancient Chinese storytelling and performance traditions, blending them with elements of marine biology to create a unique and mesmerizing visual experience.

Using 3D VR tools, Dong has crafted an imaginary aquatic fantasy world where Mulan disguises her identity and gender to integrate with a vibrant deep-sea organism and its marine ecosystems. The result is a stunning visual narrative that explores identity, transformation, and unity with nature.

This Midnight Moment brings a fresh perspective to the tale of Mulan, combining traditional cultural elements with modern technology to engage and enchant viewers. The immersive VR techniques used in this project highlight the potential of virtual reality to create rich, multi-layered art experiences that resonate on both an emotional and intellectual level.

This installation showcases how VR can be utilized as a creation tool for more mainstream public art to captivate and educate large audiences. It demonstrates the versatility of VR as not just a medium but a creative tool for storytelling.
