@ National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung, Taiwan

There is a Multi-Screens Display in National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts originally, which consists of 12 screens. I wrote an algorithm to produce images of a screen that appeared to be falling randomly. Most of the time, the blue display looks like doesn’t have any image input. When the screen suddenly begins to fall, you can hear a cartoon style sound effect of falling. You can imagine the screen in continued free fall accompanied by the sound effect, when the footage of the falling screen exceeds the display. The sound completes that mental picture, until finally the screen is heard to make impact with the ground and then shatter. After a moment the fallen screen quietly resurfaces, whole and in its original position, and the process repeats.
