The digital LED counters used in this work were created based on a self-propagating, continuously changing algorithm that resembles living processes. Looking at this highly artificial style of artwork based on program codes and digital signals prompts us to ask ourselves what it is about this work that somehow resembles a living creature.
Audience is invited to spend some time by the side of this "artificial life," and ask themselves the question "What does 'life' mean?" This is an opportunity to encounter a definition of life that may be quite different to anything you have seen previously.
