Referencing numerous contemporary Taiwanese internet symbols and combining them with the diverse styles of Taipei's streets, the artists used a game engine to construct a massive island and city. Within the city, the signage of shops, weather changes, and conversations of residents are all derived from real-time internet information, reflecting the current internet ecology of Taiwan.
In the high skies outside the island, a four men documentary crew captures the island's scenery and streams the footage in real-time through immersive curved projections. In one corner of the exhibition space, several television screens display surveillance footage scattered throughout. In another corner, a VR headset is placed. Wearing it allows one to embody a resident on the island and explore it firsthand. Additionally, a mobile smartphone lets visitors directly interact with the world through a web interface.
In this solo exhibition, audiences will explore the rich and vibrant virtual world of DATA-VERSE from multiple perspectives, identities, scales, and interfaces. The viewing experience is grand and nuanced, offering a multifaceted exploration that resonates with the real world, thriving and ever-evolving.
