We Connect with the Outside World

We Connect with the Outside World is a research project that began during the COVID-19 pandemic, based on the phenomena of Google Street View tourism. Here I invite a series of guests to use Google Street View to travel to places that cannot be visited due to the global restrictions. It is a reflection on the “reality” that exists on the Internet. The project began with the endless anxiety and worry I felt during the period of isolation. When we are trapped indoors, we can still receive most information via the screen, and yet we still feel anxious and out of touch. The series of documentaries and drawings ask questions about what is real in the context of the internet and how can we adjust to the restrictions and new possibilities of living through the screens.

“我们和屋外相连”是一个基于谷歌街景旅游的研究项目,开始于COVID-19大流行期间。在这里,我邀请了一系列嘉宾与我一起使用谷歌街景去到由于全球限制而不能去的地方。这是对网络上存在的“现实”的一种反思。这个项目开始于我在隔离期间所感受到的无尽的焦虑和担心。当我们被困在室内时,我们仍然可以通过屏幕接收大部分信息,但我们仍然会感到焦虑和脱离联系。
这一系列的纪录片和绘画向我们提出了一些问题:在互联网的背景下,什么是真实的,以及我们应该如何适应“屏幕生活”的限制和创造其新的可能性。

此项目于2021年展出于伦敦ugly duck。
