What happens to people in this era of “big data” information technologies?   I organized more than 50 independent videos for this piece. Some parts of the video come from my own organs and the collection of limb images, the other parts come from industrial products in my life. The human body has a magical ability to self-healing.  After the body suffers damage, even if we do not take any medical measures, in a certain period of time, it can still be restored. Since ancient times, human have suffered a variety of catastrophes, such as infectious diseases, natural disasters, war and so on, but no matter what, humans always exist.
