We Are Data_ The Digital shell .JPG

我們將虛擬與真實對立; 目前必須糾正此術語,此術語並不精確。虛擬並非與真實對立,而是與現實對立。虛擬是潛在的,而且虛擬是完全真實的。

(Deleuze,1968)

From the analog to digital era, signals are presented in screen devices through transmission and translation. Screen become an important bridge connected human and machine vision. In the work, I am trying to present myself as a signal into machine system. When my digital self enters the virtual world through various media devices, my digital body and face are also represented as a format in different media. I am interested in how do I look like in the machine version and how do I make my digital appearance exist in the visual world. In the end, I try to get human images in computer vision through computational machine and screen device then transfer the images into different medium.
