In his latest piece Cloud, 12 flat and cold screens simulate a small region of a dark sky, but in the other way this matrix is able to contain a boundless 3-dimension sky of a digital reality. Clouds generated by the artist’s computing language are seen flying over the screens… So how do we feel the textile dimension, the color, or even temperature…of a virtual object? Apparently, we very much rely on the knowledge understanding of the technology application, but maybe in the not far future, a sixth sense will finally be stimulated in human body to deal with the cyber reality.

在作品《云》中,12块冰冷的纯平显示器模拟出了一小片昏暗的天空。与此同时,这个矩阵却也在数字时空中为我们营造了一片无边无垠的三维天空。由艺术家(或者更准确的说,是由计算机程序语言)生成的“白云”在虚拟空际缓慢漂过……那我们究竟该怎么去感知一个虚拟物体的质地、色彩、维度,甚至是温度呢?显然,我们目前还必须依赖知识(对现代数字化技术的了解)来做出判断。但或许在不久的将来,人体将能够“模拟”出某种“第六感”,使我们更好的去感知“数字时空”。
