Relevant discussions raised by the classic astronomical three-body problem could also be significant to our interrogation of modern-day civilization— or, specifically, the relations between nature, human and technology. Unlike the ancient philosophical contemplation on the universe (nature), or the dualism (of human and nature, of subjectivity and objectivity) since Enlightenment which has long dominated the study of Epistemology, 3sth.net attempts to address how, at the end of 20th century, the third party, technology, started to catalyze changes fundamental to humanity—the end of Anthropocene period, the depowerment of Homo sapiens, and the emergence of a new intelligence.
Technological advancements had catapulted us into a new era where boundaries between the physical world and the digital universe are blurred. Data used to be a by-product of human activities. In the digital universe, however, its increasing agency allows it to be significant in forming and redefining the new three-body relationships – the digital representatives of nature, human and technology. The chaotic, multidimensional interactions among the three—at the virtual level—are not only peripheral phenomena but also writings of a new Epistemology for the digital era and a new history of Homo deus.
3sth.net centers around the new three-body movement at the conceptual level, and investigates the digital interaction between algae (nature), user (human) and artificial intelligence (technology) in practicality. As a metaphor of writing a new history of Homo evolutis, we also use a robotic arm to weave and fabricate a textile sculpture using data derived from the new three-body movements.—a way to download the digital universe to the physical world.
