A digital man who has never been in nature is hypnotised by what’s on his phone. Set in a virtual world composed entirely of ASCII characters, ‘Open Beyul Torrent’; follows the gaze of an autonomous camera as it navigates through a bleak, grey space, to focus on a man enchanted by the content on his smartphone. Having lived in a computer and never experienced nature,the man clings onto the only image of nature in his hands – a steady- flowing torrent, fit to be the backdrop of a beyul – as a window into the real world.
