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)

從類比到數位的時代,訊號都是透過傳遞和轉譯呈現於螢幕裝置之中,成為連接人類與機器視野的重要橋樑,同時傳遞相同訊號在不同的載體上展示出相同的影像和訊息。

當人類透過各式各樣的媒介進入到虛擬的世界時,不同的數位軀殼和面貌也同時已訊號的方式傳遞到各個虛擬平台之中,而這些數位軀殼能夠同時穿梭於不同的媒體,使得這些數位外貌能夠存在於世界之中。人類是否將可能如同工業革命後的產品,在虛實世界中同質量化地大量生產與複製後,成為比真實世界中更真實的擬仿物,而被擬像謀殺的真實實體,最終迎向消逝靈光的「真實」自我。

在這個作品中,透過即時錄像和三維影像掃描嘗試詮釋出機器視野中的人類影像,將人類的虛/實像如同產品般複製生產於數位以及印刷媒材之中,觀看著虛擬與現實交集於真實世界。

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.

Digital Appearance

我們所擁有各式各樣的數位足跡,也因此擁有許多不同的數位外貌,我們的數位外貌如何呈現在不同的媒介和裝置之中。

We have various digital footprints on several social platforms nowadays, so that we also have many digital shells around the digital environment. How does our digital appearances look like in the mediums, the digital eyes?
