The "real world" is built on the personal experience of living in Shanghai. With the arrival of the digital information society, large and small monitoring devices are restoring the original appearance of cities with extremely high precision, meanwhile, all kinds of information, geographic locations, live photos, descriptions, etc. are also helping people to establish more accurate sources of information.
However, the accumulation of various information and rich colors / graphics, etc., is dissolving people's awareness of the boundaries among urban objects. The city has gradually become some computer pixels or symbols and then recognized by people. This continuous process of ‘reconstruction’ and ‘deconstruction’ brings a wonderful experience, a strange but familiar, a realistic but surrealistic city illusion.
Dummy Lab will organize a battle game, and participants will join the two parties "Reconstruction" or "Resolve" to fight against each other, therefore jointly build a virtual "real world". During the experience, the city color outlined by the eyes of experiencers will change continuously according to the feedback data (breathing frequency, etc.) of the body. At the same time, the hardware device will collect the body data of the viewers to determine the shape of the city. Only when a specific object is found out in this city outlined by the viewers’ eyes, the audience behind the viewers and device monitors, and whose boundaries are blurred, the game is completed.
