Conduit is an art installation that explores how we present ourselves in public space — and in light of ever-tightening surveillance. By layering up three digital screens that represent dimensions of self-revelation: the intimate-self, the presenting-self and the surveilled-self, Conduit showcases and reveals the choice of artist, a young Asian female, made to expose her figure in the public space with the intention of transmitting the emotional experience to viewers as well as raising questions about self-revelation to catalyze the iconic moment of viewers.
The exploration and experiment process of the project is also part of it. I threw ‘me, myself, and I’ into the mix and experienced the difficulty of separating myself between performing and documenting to myself. This project, in the perspective of self-shooting, self- performance, is a self-cognition process that enables me to know myself better.
