Real life from physical world <—> Afterlife in the virtual environment

“Try to imagine that life is just as simple as life, nothing to do with sizes, forms, scales…”I try to reduce and magnify the scale of life through this work. The installation collects lives by catching bugs and flies. Lives that have been collected in real world would convert to the game “life invader” (virtual world) with the counter that shows the amount of lives. As audiences plays the game and loses it, the number decreases, till zero, it just stops working until the machine gets a new life.
