Leah Roh creates a gamified VR museum for East-Asian American forgotten by Hollywood.


In this work called X-pop, Leah Roh confronts the covert and overt racist depictions of East-Asian archetypes from pop culture, in a gamified satirical web-based VR experience. The viewer will experience the X-pop, a virtual celebration of Hollywood’s “Asian-American” community, in Mozilla Hubs.

As soon as the visitors enter, they journey down a Walk of Fame with only the stars of prominent Asian actors who are excluded from the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The road leads to a museum reminiscent of classic Euro-architecture but overly saturated with Kawaii-field accessories.

The museum exhibits dioramas that feature recreated CGI scenes from films like “Sixteen Candles” “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Aristocats.” Each diorama spotlights ‘East Asian’ characters such as Long Duk Dong and Mr Yunioshi accompanied with a plaque transcribing the scene like “Hey Howard, there’s your Chinaman” and “Shanghai Hong Kong Egg Foo Yung Fortune Cookie Always Wrong” with an interactive button that plays the scene’s audio.
