abstract: 

A website for self-exploration in the field of the internet and technology. Based on my personal data, using keywords from my memories and the numbers from my health data, I am reconstructing virtual avatars, a story of my growth, and the bodies that hold these stories and memories. It also reflects my identity as a newcomer from China, migrating to a blended analog and digital new world. We are now generating more and more virtual data, and virtual life is becoming more and more dominant. Personal identities are becoming interchangeable and indistinguishable between the virtual and the real world. Through this work, I explore the inter-transformative relationship between the physical and the virtual, the tangible and the intangible, the material and the immaterial, and the thing and the non-thing.
