By what belief do you accept something as reality or truth? People rely more and more on uncertain information. Information easily crosses the gap of distance and of time; the wide range of information available via multiple channels -from celebrity gossip to youth trends, from scientific reports to political matters- appears simultaneously and mingled together.

The information often agitates people’s recognition and desire, causing errors that rewrite the mindset. This work attempts to metaphorically show the beliefs and attitudes when confronted with information.
