Chapter Four: Put on a Virtual Helmet to Abandon the Real World

Seeking for Asylum in the Electronic Simulacra|Acrylic|540X160cm|2016

 

Fifty years before the extinction of human species, the world had already been gradually collapsing, the climate had been changing severely, and new forms of viruses had been appearing. All of this had been accelerating dramatically, and no one was able to either predict it or control it. In fact, many areas were abandoned and isolated. When scientists were not able to propose concrete and effective regulations or improvements, they left the land uninhabited. They said that this is a humane way of execution. The bourgeoisie class was definitely the first to receive an evacuation invitation. They were protected, yet a great number of ordinary people was abandoned. This seems to be a secret though. Because these sophisticated minds had continuous value and significance, scientists and electrical engineers became of first importance in the future world. Were other professional features necessary? No, in the world we live now, art enriches our souls and allows us to be more similar to human beings.

 

Before the end of the world, a group of scientists built a laboratory for the top 100 people of each profession. These people received refugee invitation cards, hence their intellect and consciousness was protected. Even though their physical bodies do not exist any more, but their mechanical organs and intelligent electronic brains can continuously accumulate in this universe. This is an important evolution. Before the end of the world, some human beings had already been implanted with microchips. As a result, they can walk in the gap of time and space. We usually refer to this as a ‘dream.’ The fact is that these people are ranked among one hundred most important human beings. There are still ongoing experiments aiming to create body and soul. Before the closing of the time slit we searched for art people in various places of the world. The thoughts of these people are the spiritual food to please electronic bodies, these people also belong to the species of blue-collars. Whether you want to give the artist a human-like head or not, it is still a controversial question.

第肆章 放棄現實世界戴上虛擬頭盔吧

《進入電子擬像中去避難》|壓克力|540X160cm|2016

在古人類滅絕前的五十年,世界早已逐漸崩壞,氣候劇烈變遷,新型病毒的產生,這一切的速度是以劇烈加速度在運行,這讓他們完全無法預估,也無法掌握。事實上許多地區是被拋棄了,被隔絕了。當科學家無法提出具體有效的控制和改善,就讓一個地區徹底的遺忘,他們說這是一種人道式的處決方式。當然資產階級絕對會先收到邀請通知書,來被保護撤離,但絕大多數就被放棄了,不過這似乎是不能說的秘密。也因為這些尖端的腦有價值意義的延續,未來的世界首要的是科學家和電子工程師,其他的職業屬性都是不必要的?不,在我們現在的世界,藝術豐富了我們的心靈,讓我們能更靠近成為一個人,那是絕對讓人瘋狂的追尋啊。

人類在末日前,世界科學團隊研擬出末日避難實驗室,發放給全球各業前百大的人類,避難邀請卡,因此他們的腦和意識延續了,即使肉身不在,機械的內臟,電子聰慧的腦,是宇宙生命中不能抹滅的積累,一個重要演化。有些人類在末日前已先被植入晶片,因此可以遊走在時空的切片縫隙中,通常我們會簡稱那是「夢」,事實上這些人類是排名百大之下,仍被認知據有實驗開創價值的肉身靈魂,我們趁著時光切縫還沒關閉前,尋找了世界各地有效度的各界藝文人士,因為那是唯一能取樂豐碩電子肉身的我們唯一的精神糧食,當然他們也是屬於藍領物種,要不要給藝術家一個人道式的頭顱,目前我們仍就爭議不斷。
