In I’m Disguised, Right in front of You, Zhu Changquan turns his attention to the evolutionary origin of human beings —monkeys, which appears more like an ultimate inquisition. But in fact, the “hundred-eyed monkey” in the film is a digital image, and in the material world, it is just a bit of data. It is replaceable, and it could have just as easily been an image of a stone, a leaf, a light, or no image at all. From another perspective, it actually simulates or reproduces a world where the boundaries between humans, objects (data), and divine beings are completely lost.
