Yu-Chuan Tseng 2004
Artist :Yu-Chuan, Tseng
The work “FUSE” presents a collective memory by images whish conveyed by mobile phone. We create a platform to invite the participant to mail the photos which took by mobile phone. The photos will be decoded and regenerated into color dots in real time. The color dots will fuse with the color dots of previous image. The mobile phone with photo function as an interactive device recreates the intention of the people.
The authenticity of image has been exaggerated by
mass media. In the book of Jean Baudrillard “La guerre du Golfe
n'a pas eu lieu”, he claimed that the golf war is a collective
illusion created by mess media. The meanings of information have been
regenerated and create a fake reality in digital era. Human own memories
and existing intentions granted by digital apparatus. We fantasize the
existence experience and believe the illusion.
