Taiwan is a 3C* kingdom, where numerous informational products are discarded—some of which, replaced by newer models, still usable. For this piece of work, I collected hundreds of scrap CD-ROM drives and made them come back to life.

The Internet, the blood of my work, is itself a stream from which data, consisting of 0’sand 1’s, are put in(uploaded) and taken out (downloaded; accessed). Likewise, data in a CD-ROM can be put in(burned) or taken out (read). In my work, I want to convert the Internet data—the ones and zeroes—into the CD-ROM drives’ physical ejection and retraction, thus making the activity of logging on to the Internet both visible and audible. Moreover, by putting a large quantity of CD-ROM drives together, I would like to immerse the audience in the grand informational torrent materialized by the collective action. The mechanic movement shall create a space undefined, moving, developing, “massaging” the body all the time.

*3C means products belonging to the categories of computer, communications, andconsumer-electronics.
