“Zoom” is an installation with found digital images from the NASA Image and Video Library and Google map. I have explored the theme related to digital and personal archive and photographic installation for this project. The imageries of outer space represented the collective consciousness of the unknown universes. The result of capturing the failure of the process in order to search for the reality behind these images became the main focus of the work.

 

When I look at the imagery of outer space from NASA digital archive, I wonder if I could find anything else personal there, maybe the prove of the myth about people who has become stars from these digital imageries taken by the most advanced technology. During the experiment,  I tried to zoom in to the digital found imagery until I reached the limitation of the maximum resolution of the digital file. Unfortunately I only found blurred out pixels, shade of light and pure colours… the actual reality that composed these digital images.

 

What am I looking at when I look at these imagery? I realised that I was only looking at my own imaginative world.

 

The result of capturing the failure of the process in order to search for the reality behind these images has become the concept of the work; which recorded my experiment, my failure, and the hidden emotions remained from the specific found imagery.

裝置, 美國太空總署影像與影片數據庫和Google 地圖的現成影像

這些加工的影像是我在線上數據庫找到一些現成影像,其中包括福島第一核電廠的夜景。在創作的過程中,我一邊不斷放大不同的數碼影像直到像數和表象被摧毀;同時我又不斷縮小某些影像直到人類的肉眼無法分辨影像的內容。影像與回憶的關係正在被電子數據庫(Online Database)重新定義,其中包括怎樣去記憶一件事件、一次經歷,甚至一種情感。我嘗試對這些影像的表象和內容作出提問,到底每當我們觀看著這些電子數據庫中的影像時,是不是只是在觀看著自身的想像空間而已。

當一切看似真實卻又這麼模糊。
