人類過度習慣使用自己的視角看待事物,在這件作品當中想要讓人們嘗試思考以機械的視角來看待世界。當人們正在以自己的觀點來創造各種事物的同時,若同樣的事情從機械的觀點來看待「創造」這件事情時會是什麼樣子呢?這一群機械生命都是由機械的造物者所創造,他們所需要面對的生存挑戰為何呢?他們在面對自然環境時,如何與自然環境共生呢?我們的生活經驗中會看到寄居蟹在海邊撿拾人們所丟棄的廢棄物作為身體的一部分,若是機械生命體會如何面對他們所認為的生活環境呢?

This work invites viewers to see the world through a machine’s perspective. People are accustomed to seeing the world through an anthropocentric viewpoint and create things accordingly. What will it be like if machines are creating things through their perspective? Created by the Mechanical Creator, what are the challenges this group of mechanical life forms is facing for survival? How do they live within and adapt to the environment? We know that hermit crabs are using human trash as their shells. What would the mechanical life forms do when they are interacting with their living environment?
