With Randomness She Rules
Single-channel video loop
The work presents a digital simulated Galton board floating in the sky, but the numerous beads inside are all human beings. They spin and bump to each other so rapidly that felt almost violent while staying in indifferent T-poses. The animation completes a seamless loop – that flipping and re-categorizing goes on forever.
This endless motion suggests senses of nihility, mechanicalness, and absolute force in social reality, but with an unsettling feeling of divinity. In the later part, the camera intensely follows one of the characters. These virtual beings, in their digitally composed voices, declare that the only hope living in a “meaningless complex structure” is to worship randomness as their god.
