Most people believe in their sensory perception. We smell, hear, taste, see and touch, and then we believe that what we perceive is reality, and that reality will later affect our behaviors, decisions and thoughts; this is the process called reaction. However, reactions are caused not only by the senses, but also by many other factors, such as memories, experiences, situations, as well as imaginations and expectations for things to happen. It is also possible that sleeping, thinking and dreaming also conjure up some images which can have impact upon our thoughts and minds.
The questions are how much these mental factors can influence our behavior and how much the impulsion from man-made simulated world, which may not be complete in terms of sensorial dimensions, can convince the audience’s thoughts and beliefs.
This work is a simulation created to experiment on the questions above. Its format is similar to a typical art exhibition displayed in a rectangular room, but not even one piece of the works is a real object. They appear as projected images on the wall to show the atmosphere of an exhibition room, like a large mirror reflecting another overlapping dimension. It is a simulated world, physically incomplete one, which can be “seen” but untouchable. Movement of images can be controlled, but they are still “the unreal”. How can the audience react with this incompleteness, and how much can the audience believe, accept and follow this virtual perception?
