—————–

As you walk through another digital dimension, you find yourself becoming an existence here. Would you like to stay?

Your present self is guided through a generative virtual space and transformed into a part of it. Alive adapts to an anti-narrative structure which is established by the lack of coherency and connection between various scenes since there is a variation of experiments in terms of visual elements. The juxtaposition between organic and digital movement is also highlighted throughout the work. The anti-narrative structure is probably reflected most by the element of chance in the audience’s viewing experience since the order of scenes are randomized, which means every time the web page is reloaded, the viewers receive a different order of the story.

With the application of the random and noise functions built-in Javascript libraries, the shapes, colours or typography are also randomized each time. Therefore, this digital experience has hundreds of variations that differ from viewer to viewer, from the present you to the future you. The climax of this narrative is perhaps when the viewers become digital existences themselves when they are asked to interact through the webcam at the end of the work.

Alive is displayed on a web page instead of a pre-recorded video to ensure the interesting structure and the personalized elements that digital medium such as coding allows us to produce.
