Through fictionalizing a futuristic society that has been fully built on integrated circuits and manipulated by political lies, Lisha talks about authenticity within that national totalitarianism. Through counterfeiting meteorites, she produces a large amount of ‘techno fossil meteorites’, connects each of them with built-in electronic wires, and distributes them in space to create a walk-in openness. The group of ‘techno fossil meteorites’ is a metaphor for collectivity, as well as a set of interactive devices. As audiences conduct static electricity from their bodies to the ‘techno fossil meteorites’, conversations between two people about authenticity will be triggered.
