Creative thinking is frequently inspired by daily experience and observation, artist transform those experience into their artworks, as well as one of the conceptual craftsmanship in art. In the 21st century, an era of virtualization and digitization, physical craftsmanship is blended with digital technology, cooperating and enhancing each other in a transmedia perspective. In this context, it is obvious that it is reasonable to bring the electronic phenomena to the forefront in an artistic experience.

Digital data is colourless, shapeless and odourless, which is an essential of our daily surroundings. From the civil to the military cell tower, signals are nearly transmitted to every corner. With its endless technological evolution, it will be everywhere. At the same time, the data transmission process is not noticeable and often faces different degrees of interference. Those remaining signal noise and energy are lost in the unknown.
