All in Pieces | 尽皆碎片
A New Media Installation
that transforms real-time tweets to fragmented sounds and lights.

新媒体装置,将实时推文转化成声光碎片

“All in Pieces” is an installation, which can grab Tweets from Twitter in real time and project them onto a set of mirror pieces. At the same time, the computer program turns every letter of the Tweets into a sound frequency. The installation creates an immersive environment for audiences to resonate from their daily experience of information fragmentation, which is a social issue caused by the explosion of information on the Internet and the expanding of new media. As a primary information source, social media is gradually but deeply influencing people’s life by its “short”, “quick” and “inconsistent” characteristics. We are drowned in this ocean of information fragments. It’s getting harder to integrate pieces of information to construct meanings from the ocean of scattered information. This is the pain of people in the digital age. “All in Pieces” reflects the issue and refines the related daily experience.

《尽皆碎片》是一件装置作品,它通过电脑程序从推特实时获取推文,并将其投影在一组碎镜片装置上,并反射在黑暗的空间里。与此同时,电脑程序将推文里的每一个字母都转换成一个相应的声音频率。这个项目旨在反观当代社会信息严重碎片化的问题以及社交媒体这个主要助推器,通过新媒体技术构造出碎片化的声音和视觉体验,引发思考。
