Digital euphoria is more like a “Meditation-Style" experience in contemporary society. While the body is in the physical world, the spirit has entered countless spaces. Taìchū 3030 is about the digital soul in the cyber world, and the imagined immortality in the future. As the artist sat in front of the computer, facing the flickering screen, the online conference showed video images of everyone, looking so close, yet so far away, as if she was having a conversation with a pile of data. So she began to rethink the relationship between the human physical body, data, space, and network. What is the “stress reaction" of the physical and virtual body when we are forced to move from physical space to digital space? When all human lives are threatened, is it possible to gently reject the surreal but actual existing situation with the beautiful concept of "eternal life"?
