Digital Being: TV BEING 009-23

7(W) x 13(H) x 10(D) inch, CRT TV Monitor, Arduino, LED, 2018

“DIGITAL BEING” is an unknown creature born from abandoned and forgotten technologies. It reveals itself through an atypical movement or an interaction according to the machinery that it dominates.

After Digital Switchover, huge number of analog TVs have been abandoned. What if they had had a primitive consciousness during their past operation. What if the consciousness starts to make their own world in the discarded machine. My artwork, Digital Being, is based on this hypothesis.

It generates random texts, while it thinks.
