This project consists of AR + Autoethnographic Experimental Video + Live Performances.
It is based on real events. In 2022, I lost my grandfather while studying in the UK and I was not able to go back home to see him for the last time due to Covid-19. Two months after he passed away (on his birthday), I lost my dog who had been with me for thirteen years. They are disasters but I chose to face them: I used social media WeChat to circulate a poster, and the algorithm detected me and then deleted me: it showed that I had successfully sent it but no one could actually see it.
From this starting point, I made an experimental video and live performance to remember my grandfather and dog, trying to heal the trauma through art and also trying to reflect on the stifling effects of algothrims on people, critiquing who has the power to decide who can be seen online.
