New media (interactive installation)

Before the Eternal Silence is a time-based installation that uses the past eighteen years of environmental data to explore the belief that the destruction of human habitation is getting worse and worse, and emphasize the interconnected influence between humans and our environment. The operation of the installation is inspired by the feedback loop system. The interaction of the data is based on speculating a scenario that the situation of our environment is getting worse as the days go on. The installation uses the rose in The Little Prince as the metaphor for humans and nature. The purpose of the project aims to call attention to the deterioration of nature and to remind the viewer of our place within the symbiotic relationship of the world around us.
