例如,拉脫維亞RIXC新媒體文化中心的Rasa Smite和Raitis Smits運用科技工具探討「環境廣播」與人類感知的微妙連結。Marisa Morán Jahn將科學、神話和政治巧妙地融合,促使我們重新審視與自然資源的關係。Aarti Sunder對現代勞動市場進行深入探究,檢視技術對感知和認知的深遠影響。Nicole L'Huillier透過象徵性儀式剖析聲音種子作為抵抗工具的潛力。Maggie Coblentz以創意視角關注人類在宇宙中的生存和依賴,描繪太空食物的前瞻原型。臺灣藝術家陳肇彤挑戰我們對物理空間的常規理解;賴彥勳則巧妙地將抽象概念轉化為具體形式,揭示滲透日常生活的隱藏結構。

除展覽外,Marisa Morán Jahn的工作坊探索魔鬼在科技、社會和心理中的錯綜複雜角色。徐叡平和Nancy Valladares則提供了對共生關係的洞見,連結微觀視野與廣闊的永凍層。這些活動與STS年會中的呈現相呼應,將社會科技議題與表演敘事交織在一起。


In an era of rapid digitization and globalization, existing boundaries and standards are constantly being challenged. The term "scale" no longer refers solely to the physical but is emblematic of the intersection of temporal, informational, perceptual, and cultural realms. Responding to the Taiwan STS Annual Meeting theme, "Rescaling the World," the exhibition bridges the realms of technology, society, and contemporary art, featuring works by artists who have been affiliated with the MIT Media Lab and ACT, along with contributions from Taiwanese artists, offering multifaceted interpretations of the notion of scale.

For example, Rasa Smite and Raitis Smits, from Latvia's RIXC Center for New Media Culture, harness technological tools to delve into the intricacies of "field radio" and human perception. Marisa Jahn presents an intricate blend of science, myth, and politics, urging a reevaluation of our relationship with natural resources and underscoring our interconnectedness. Aarti Sunder critically engages with the modern labor market, examining the profound influence of technology on perception and cognition. Nicole L'Huillier investigates the potential of sound seeds as a resistance tool through symbolic rituals. Maggie Coblentz directs her artistic lens towards human survival and dependence in the cosmos, conjuring up thought-provoking prototypes of space food. Taiwanese artist CHEN Chao-Tung pushes boundaries in our conventional understanding of physical space. Meanwhile, LAI Yen-Hsun masterfully transforms conceptual ideas into tangible art forms with an eye for abstraction, revealing the hidden structures that permeate everyday lives.

Complementing the exhibition, Marisa Jahn's workshop explores the intricate roles of devils in technology, society, and psychology. Similarly, HSU Rae and Nancy Valladares offer insights into symbiotic relationships, bridging microscopic views with vast permafrost explorations. These events resonate with many presentations at the STS Annual Meeting, where discussions of technology and societal issues often intersect with performance and theatrical narratives.

Positioned at the intersection of art, technology, and social consciousness, this exhibition aims to foster meaningful dialogue between the public, scholars, and artists. It offers new vantage points for thought and feeling, expanding our comprehension and interpretation of the world. Showcased artworks highlight transitions in scale, from the microscopic to the macroscopic, crossing natural, sociopolitical, and technological dimensions and extending to the vast spaces between Earth and the cosmos. This diverse artistic practice reminds us of the necessity to reflect and adapt as we rescale the world.
