By chance, I discovered that Google had kept my search history all along.
At first, I read with novelty. But as I read more and more about my private worries that I had never shared with anyone, the novelty gradually turned into nakedness. I asked the Internet unabashedly, and it answered with omniscience. I should be grateful for these answers, yet these records I unknowingly left behind feel like a voyeuristic snapshot of my inner world. Should I be angry? My dependence on it is apparent in every word. I’ve long forgotten life without it, and perhaps, as a digital native, I’ve never even experienced such a life. Is this some kind of Stockholm syndrome, or a psychological rejection of cybernetic implants?
The Internet always gives the impression of being “public,” but its relationship with people seems more intimate than imagined. I seek answers by exposing my search history unfiltered in public spaces. If I tell everyone what I’ve told it, what would my feelings towards it become?

Simple noodle art
(Chen Ziyin X Chuang Gotop)
Simple noodle art is formed by Chen Ziyin and Zhuang Gotop. We work with a diverse range of mediums including film, installation, internet art, video, and photography.
Coming from different backgrounds, we attempt to inspire each other with interdisciplinary thinking, jointly focusing on the changes and impacts on lifestyle brought about by the interaction between products and people in the digital age.
We also share an irresistible passion for simple noodles, hoping that we can create the most wonderful flavors with concepts as close to life as simple noodles.
Our past works have been exhibited at institutions such as the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, C-LAB, and 182ARTSPACE.
