Brave New World


Brave New World is a site specific participatory art-work, which invites participants to provide their views(image) and emotions to the real time analysis and visualization system through Twitter. The system will generate a collective image of emotions and images about the space in real time. The work is designed to make virtual communication tangible to explore the relationship between people’s perceptions and both coded physical and virtual spaces. The colour of the emotion is based by Plutchik’s wheel of emotions. see the participation: searh #wmhere on twitter.

Hello, Friend


我拿起手机,解锁,屏幕亮起,上锁,我把手机放回桌子上。在这个行为中,我没有查看时间,也没有打开朋友圈,但它能成功的帮助 我舒缓在现实世界感到的社交恐惧,和在虚拟世界感到错失事件的慌张。朋友告诉我,这是人类高效的「自动补全功能」—— 它帮助我 实现了一次现实世界与虚拟世界的同步(synchronization),缓解了两个世界进程不一致所造成的压力。2019 年的「人类社群空间的风景,是虚拟的,也是真实的,是现在的,也是过去的。」「你好,朋友 | Hello, Friend」在「虚」与「实」、「现在」与「过去」中开启对话。 Details »

Surveillance X


Surveillance X is a performance conducted by algorithmically grown plants. In the work, three “plants” are irradiated by real-time global news trawled on the internet. Under the radiation conditions mass media, the plants endure a subtle process of growth and transformation, until they are finally shaped by the news. The work investigates the seamless, ubiquitous existence of online media, and the co-existence of and mutual evolution of humans, information and technology.《监控 X》是由三株植物程序共同完成的表演。 Details »

BEYOND TAGS在运行中书写自身,讲述数字暴涨现实中,“自我”的流逝、降解、重组与更迭。全球互联网在1分钟内传送的数据大约为64000Gb, 软件的场景分工也界定了我们的每日产生数据的分类、流向与结构我们“提交”和“上传”的内容,是对“自我”意识的线上策展,而这些界定我们是谁的数据单元,也可能是数字时空里的牢笼。数据库是否内嵌不成文的规则,这些规则是否会反过来驯化与改写我们自己?意识在数字空间里的流动是否真的更自由?作品模拟当代社交软件的交互方式与逻辑,人们可以通过扫描二维码参与讨论、提交与上传内容。 Details »

I went down yesterday …


I went down yesterday to the Piraeus with Glaucon the son of Ariston by Plato. In The Republic, Book VII, Plato depicts a cave where people have been imprisoned from birth. These prisoners are chained so that their legs and necks are fixed, forcing them to gaze at the wall in front of them. The prisoners cannot see any of what is happening behind them, they are only able to see the shadows cast upon the cave wall in front of them. Socrates suggests that the shadows are reality for the prisoners because they have never seen anything else. Details »

a room with a view


In the beginning of 2016, an exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery in London used the term “electronic superhighway” to address artistic forms and languages in the media age. In a Guardian review, we are described as “roadkill” on this superhighway. The freedom of information has brought great convenience: mobile pay, location sharing and all-round social networking softwares have endowed us with legitimate avatars of ourselves in the digital world. However, in the same time, it also interrogates Details »

News Scope


“News” takes online news feed and converts them into keywords based on a customised semantic analysis. The final result was an interactive experience, which participants signed to a piece of real time news from the web and they could comment or fake a story. By creating a mediated space, the piece encourages people to re-explore and re-sense the physical world as they find their way out in the virtual yet physical maze. The work was first showed at “Artist.log” event at Westlake, Apple Store.

Third Eye


Third Eye is an interactive installation, isolating people’s visual perception from the physical world. The piece is a wearable device composed of two parts: a wifi lens camera, AR glasses, and a re-designed helmet. When put on, the device will offer the user a sequence of mediated perspectives, higher vision, mirrored vision, and upside down vision. The experience environment of Third Eye is composed of three parts: the device, a maze, and the user. Although the system is the same, identical results will occur depending on the Details »

Surveillance 2.0


Surveillance II is a piece composed of an arabidopsis plant and a digital screen. On the space station, normal arabidopsis plants used to be exposed under different environmental conditions for scientific examination. In Surveillance II, an arabidopsis plant is positioned in a “space capsule”, the micro-environment data (wind, light, air pressure) is synced with that of the location where the news takes place. Meanwhile, as a response to these “news radiation”, the oxygen released by the plant is also tracked and displayed in real-time. Details »

Place Talk


Place-Talk is about conversation and places, exploring how local people from one specific site respond to the curiosity of people from other places. The idea is to have a travelling box as a metaphor of a traveller who is tired of travel guides websites and apps, and who wants to understand the destination via conversations with locals.The box itself is also a physicalisation in response to virtual dialogues.
There is a screen on the box, displaying messages from people who submit messages on the project website. Details »
