Chimeras Sing a Song(v3)
Art by Yu-Chuan Tseng
Collaboration: Yi-Ching Huang, Chi-Ping Chin, Kuan-Ying Wu, Wei-Ting Chen
The main topic of this work is the chimera. It is a metaphor for the human species having already become chimeras of the organic and virtual – digital tools have become a part of our physical body. Real memory and digital memory mix and blend within hypothetical and real space to become a hybrid entity with the ability to evolve and reproduce. When the viewer with the chimera, leaves the display area where the signals are transmitted and activates the application, the call of the chimera’s world is then received. It creates the voice of the chimera. One can even go the next step and sing along, co-creating the song of the chimera.
