During the artist’s aimless Internet surfing, she analyzes and visualizes her emotional changes through a brainwave headset (electroencephalogram). Simultaneously, her hand-drawn animations interact with the screencast of her computer, blending imagination with reality. While scrolling through the Internet, she comes across with fake science articles and medical records of patients with mental disorders. Through the map of the hospital, she locates the area with the worst air pollution and spots China’s first military nuclear base “404.” While clicking on the new webpages, she is also replacing and forgetting the old ones. In the digital ocean of information, her emotions change unpredictably. Racing thoughts are taking over her mind.

艺术家在随机的网络浏览过程中,用脑电仪实时量化和可视化她的情绪波动,并通过手绘动画,将网络信息与她的主观联想交织一体。通过关键词“脑电波”,她搜索到一系列伪科学文章,和精神病患者的病例,通过医院地图,她在空气污染严重的中国西北,定位到代号404的秘密军事核基地。她不断点击新的网页,同时也在覆盖和遗忘之前的信息,情绪起伏不定。在网络讯息的裹挟之中,她漫无目的地前进,看最后会到哪。
