「造作」——「伪造的虚假日常」
  [ Mr. Noboby's Lifestyle ]
社交网络的虚假性,创造了一个表演的舞台。
不管是自选的图片、编写的文字、分享的歌曲还是转发的链接,甚至信息来源的公众平台,都是本人生活的蛛丝马迹。
事件、时间、地点等信息交织出一种真实感,然而这些像素和数据只能停留在冰冷的电子屏幕上。真实的错觉与不可否认的距离,给予了每个人创作理想的对外自我形象的机会。
 
书中内容选择了一位好友,自 2014年10月2日15:48 到 2015年11月25日19:01 所发微信,是她的私人生活纪录,真挚并情绪化。「造作」将她的信息打乱,随机分配,做成 2015年10月日历的形式。总共 372 张。
 
每撕开单日的一张,那张的内容即为当日的日常,在使用日历的过程中,使用者创造出每天的日常,然而这些日常是否为原日的日常便不得而知。每日总共有 12 页,随机撕下某几日的日历,即创作出整一个月新的日常。以此类推,可创造出一年的日常生活,这也就是伪造的虚假日常。
The illusion of social network has created a stage for performing.The photos you choose, the lines you write, the music you share, the links you retweet, or even the sources, are all traces of your life.
Information like fact, time and location all interweave with each other, and manufacture a sense of reality. However, it is the cold electronic screen that displays all these pixels and data. The illusion of reality and undeniable distance has granted everyone a great chance to build a perfect self image.

The book recorded a good friend’s life, sincere and emotional, with her WeChat chat history from 15:48, Oct. 2nd, 2014 to 19:01, Nov. 25th, 2015. Fabrication rearranged her chat history in random order, and put 12 pages in each day of October, 2015. That makes this calendar 372 pages in total.

Every page that you tear down on an odd-numbered day will become the daily record of the present day. While using this calendar, you will create daily records everyday. But you can never tell if these daily records are from the original day. There are 12 pages for every day. A new daily record of a new month will be created by those pages you tear down on any day randomly. By doing so, you can create a daily record for a year, and this is the illusion of reality.

完成这个命题作文的过程中
我时不时被朋友的情绪所触动
甚至有时想,她所感受到的sadness
是不是也是我即将迎来的体会
在着 372 个[日常]中我挑选了几张中意款
Thanks!
