In the era of advanced technology, people maintain relationships through the Internets cyberspace.Although the cyberspace has helped us overcome the problems caused by time, distance and space, we have eventually started to rely on the virtual world, but at the same time this has caused fragmented emotions and memories. In the pre-production process of this work, I tried to live in the actual living space of my relatives and friends who usually only contact me through the Internet. I used 3D scanning software and arbitrary lens capturing method to scan their daily living space, producing irregular, dilapidated and blurry images. Then, I imported the images of different environments scanned in different time slots into 3D software, and put them in new virtual, artificial spatial coordinates, displaying appearances which may be more authentic than reality. In an attempt to explore the era of accelerated development in information technology, we seem to have gotten more than what we bargained for, but at the same time, it has slowly become incomplete. At the same time, in order to let the audience immerse themselves into the virtual world and give them a stronger experience, weve added the sounds and echoes of two smartphones video calling in real time.The way words are spoken has been changed in an attempt to show the blurry fragments of the emotions and memories of people after they started to rely on technology; it is a sight that is even more authentic than reality. Despite it all, it is up to us to decide on whether we continue to talk to each other through the screen and become an illusion longing for connection.
