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?
作品《二十一个人》是根据数字孪生技术,将代表生物不会被时间侵蚀的部分——7颗真实的牙齿进行3D扫描、建模和打印并分成三个阶段:真实的牙,数字化并3D打印出来的塑料牙齿与将塑料牙齿上色而成的仿真牙齿。它们看似形状相同、根源相同,但又是完全的不一样的构造和成分。也是对由计算机对真实事务进行数据搜集、数据分析以及未来生成这个真实事务的数据面貌能不能代替这个事务存在提出质疑。
