The Creation

2015 Video 5min30s

I am interested in the growing uncertainty in the present era; I am interested in the evolving relation between technology and life; I am interested in new and unknown species generated in this era of accelerating interaction. I create the future world specimen from the perspective of an artist, mixing up history, religion, technology and body science to bring about new artistic experience.

《创造》

2015 单屏录像 5min30s

我感兴趣当下在持续变化中的不确定性,人类与科技的关系是这个作品的主题。我感兴趣在这个加速互动的时代语境中所创找出来的新的、未知的物种。因而我创造了一个人机结合体的后人类的形象,他是万能的上帝,也是人机结合的新物种。我用流行的MV的形式创造他的世界,性行为作为象征新物种的创造方式,狂想基因突变的后人类未来。我让现有的文化,科技,身体,性,生长出我想象的未来结构。
