ONISHI Takuto / TOMINAGA Kei / MASUDA Yuta [Japan]


In this work, a screen shows a “sandstorm” of white dots that come and go in a random pattern, as when a television cannot receive radio waves in an analog broadcast. This is run through a Google translation application, which picks up the weak radio waves in the sandstorm, to draw out information that humans cannot perceive. With a sense of humor, this work questions what it means to be human through the medium of a computer.
