Out of the Box - The Midlife Crisis of the Digital Revolution
The Form of Digital Nature
Yoichi Ochiai defines “Digital Nature” as a new perspective on nature, composed of digital media. In Digital Nature, our current norms of physical and recognition abilities are transcended. Extremely enhanced computation and resolution abilities become part of daily life. The humanity of the future may live in Digital Nature, where the very concepts of nature, artificial objects, gravity and time are overturned.
Here, the artificial printed butterfly and dead butterfly are exhibited in the same installation. These digital mimicries of nature show the alternative to our nature and perception.
