The displayed artwork recorded, during her aimless Internet surfing, the artist analyzes and visualizes her emotional changes through a brainwave headset (electroencephalogram). Simultaneously, her hand-drawn animations interact with the screencast of her computer, blending imagination with reality. While scrolling through the Internet, she comes across with fake science articles and medical records of patients with mental disorders. Through the map of the hospital, she locates the area with the worst air pollution and spots China’s first military nuclear base “404.” In the digital ocean of information, she constantly clicks on the new webpages, replacing and forgetting the old ones. Racing thoughts are taking over her mind.
