As Lin Ke reads the same message along with the computer AI speech system, a striking juxtaposition is presented where the real and the virtual are flattened and their boundaries blurred in the maze of internet. It is a critical reflection on social phenomenon, as well as a prophecy of the future: that perhaps someday the authenticity and depth of internet behaviour would cease to be significant.
