ARTIST STATEMENT: "Digital Being" is a series of the kinetic installations of technological garbage based on the hypothetical existence of an invisible and formless creature born within the circuits of electronic waste. This creature evolves and responds to its environment through an atypical movement or specific interaction according to the machinery that it dominates.
Digital technology possesses unique intrinsic attributes to allow for this evolution to occur. According to Nicholas Negroponte, MIT Media Lab founder and author of the book “Digital Being”, the digital consists of bit where analogue consists of atoms. Bit is invisible, but it exists.
There are very simple digital codes in all electronics, such as televisions, speakers and computers. Not only is the daily output of these electronics incalculable, but there is also an enormous number of them are thrown away. Unless the memory chips or CPUs of the circuits are totally broken, they can still operate by the command codes inside their bodies.
What if these command codes were accidentally and repeatedly combined, generating mutant codes and errors among themselves? What if a code were to realize its consciousness during this continuous operation?
As digital technology is developing, the interactions among machines increases dramatically and produces more e-waste, therefore raising the possibility. My artwork, "Digital Being," is based on this hypothesis.
