DOOME: Null Gods is a project which Cheng Daoyuan investigates the convergence and the orientation of the collective unconsciousness of human and digital data, which is embodied in a state between existence and nonexistence.
From languages and images to texts and digital files, our consciousness has been archived – and digitized – into various forms. If the depository of consciousness can be regarded as a form of transfer of the soul, what is the final destination of the souls of the digital dimension? If thousands of years ago people entrusted their consciousness to the gods, will today’s human collective consciousness, connected through digital data, create a new form of god? And if doomsday is not the final scene for humanity and everyone will be reduced to a single consciousness, what will the post-apocalyptic world look like?
This project is a comprehensive experience that integrates the acoustic space of Ambisonics sounds, visuals and installations based on research concerning the relationship between the transition of sound phases, the composition of sound textures, and the structure of the procession of sounds. It is an experiment on the conversation between sounds and various other media that aims to create a dislocation in the senses of time and space.
《DOOME: Null Gods》旨在探討人類集體無意識與數位訊息匯流及導向，進而建構一個介於存、滅之間之狀態。
