The Big You, 2017, installation, sculpture
The Big You include 3 miniature scenes with 3 micro-camera hidden in them. The micro-cameras will monitor what is happening in these scenes, and project the live stream onto the wall behind. Through real-time video processing techniques, such as zooming in, rotating the target object, and blending image output, the audience would experience a hard time connecting the projected videos to the miniature sceneries.
This project tries to discuss the phenomenon: in the era of information explosion, we receive information actively and passively. People can also easily become exporters of information on the Internet. This two-way feedback mechanism of information makes us doubt the accuracy and authenticity of the information. When the role of objectivity in information communication depends on the communicator (the media), the standpoint becomes the focus and the information loses its original role and becomes a tool.
