Scenery Between-Windows 1


In the time of Covid-19, in contrast to limited reality, the digital environment set up radical openness and deregulation, so anything that interferes with communication is eliminated: Time is replaced by real-time, space is replaced by hyperlinks, and humans exist as images.

時間(Time) - 間(between) = 時(o'clock)
空間(Space) - 間(between) = 空(Void)
人間(Human) - 間(between) = 人(Individual)
(時間 - 時) + (空間 - 空) + (人間 - 人) = 間間間(between-between-between)

間間 means 'on and off' in Korean. Life relying on only the endless concatenating 'on and off' digital signal is ever-changing, thus, unstable and insecure. The window reflects ‘The Loss of Time, Space and Humanity', observed in a limited real life and in the digital environment.
