OTHER SPRING

OTHER SPRING

is

a research essay,
a virtual world,

and a short film.

 

The project is inspired

by an ancient Chinese fable

THE TALE OF THE PEACH BLOSSOM SPRING

about a fisherman
accidentally venturing into a mysterious peach blossom
spring that is surrounded by a thick fog.

OS critically investigates the societal implications of computational mediation, automation, and AI. Drawing from ZZYW's research paper Computational Haze, the project comprises a virtual world and a short film exploring the potential of ‘heretical computing’ (based on a lecture by Alexander R. Galloway, 2020) to challenge the monolithic idea of efficiency and precision that characterizes our contemporary information society.
