With the rapid development in computer technology, achieving visual effects is increasingly real. However, the visual effects made with this excellent technology leaves a faint digital trail. This digital trail makes me feel uneasy with sophisticated computer technology. I don’t think this trail can be concealed, no matter how science and technology develops. I indulge in the conflict made by the digital technological sense. I want to use it to create a situation which is just on the boundary of reality and falsity, an abstract sense of science fiction.
