當兩岸三地互打資訊戰,網路上的資訊彷若為具有生命,能夠移動、重組、突變、擴散、產生能量、大量繁殖、也能死亡。
「遠房親戚實驗室」自2020年在C-LAB的CREATORS進駐期間,開始發展「芥面」計畫。該計畫以中國官方在華文資訊傳遞與儲存的監督控管為例,參照過去台灣與中國資訊交流的歷史,和當下的網路資訊傳輸的現實需求與潛在困境,提出一套以基因改造阿拉伯芥植株,作為兩岸三地資訊交流及語彙保存介面(芥面)的完整方法,並準備作為未來國際間任一網路極權控管區域在資訊無法自由傳輸,甚或「斷網」情境下,匿名訊息傳遞、擴散、複製、儲存的一種可能格式。
As information warfare rages on between China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, information on the internet has gradually assumed a lifelike power with which it can move, reassemble, mutate, and transmit itself as well as generate power, multiply, and, of course, die.
Lab of the Distant Relatives has been developing the Intergrass project since the period of CREATORS 2020 at C-LAB. The project incorporates the Chinese authority’s surveillance of the transmission and storage of Chinese information, the history of information exchanges between Taiwan and China, and the current needs and potential challenges of internet information transmission to propose a complete interface of information exchange and storage using the genetically modified (GM) Arabidopsis thaliana plants. This interface, or “intergrass,” can also serve as a potential format of anonymous information transfer, transmission, multiplication, and storage in the event that any international totalitarian internet surveying area controls the free transmission of information—or even disconnects the entire network—in the future.
