The inspiration of this project stems from the concept of human-environment interaction. It is the experiment that converts human’s perception of light to embodied visual experience in two different ways, which invites participants to experience the mutual relationship between human and the environment. Meanwhile, this project is also conceived in terms of exploring human perception through mirror image to rethink immersion and embodiment, observation and interaction, partial and the whole through the form of digital art.
Human Environmental Interactions can be defined as interactions between the human social system and (the “rest” of) the ecosystem. Human social systems and ecosystems are complex adaptive systems (Marten, 2001).
Although digital media in the context of exploring human experience by technology, it could be a different way to establish a new perception through the interaction of human and environment based on the possibility by using digital technology. It has broader forms of exploring environmental needs instead of users’ needs in this field to address the issue, such as energy conservation (e.g. lighting, temperature and electronic energy etc.) in a space.
