21 “Humans”
Jan 2020

Based on the digital twin technology, the work 21 “Humans” will represent the parts that will not be eroded by time -- the 7 real teeth will be 3D scanned, modeled and printed, and divided into three stages: the real teeth, the digitized plastic teeth and the 3D printed simulated teeth. They seem to have the same shape and root, but they are completely different in material and composition. It also raises questions about whether the computer can collect and analyze the data of the real object and make a same “twin” in the virtual world. Is this data-made object can replace the existence of the real object?
