Aqua
December 2014

Aqua is a short video work that deals with an uncanny interior space which becomes a metopher for the Contemporary mental state.

As Max Velmans and Susan Schneider wrote in The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness: "Anything that we are aware of at a given moment forms part of our consciousness, making conscious experience at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives."

While human in centuries have struggled to pin down the essential properties of consciousness, the ever-increasing involvements of the digital technology in our daily life have certainly complicated this issue. As the digital activity is gradually replacing the usual human activities that historically define who we are, Aqua is a conscious space that is concerned with the state of the human consciousness. Asking the question whether human beings are getting closer of knowing who we are or actually getting away from the fulfillment of the human existential meaning with their technological extensions.
