A monitor is an element that modern people are most familiar with at the era of technology explosion. We thought smart devices understand and fulfill our demands, but instead, it is us whom monitor controls. And we have no feelings towards this germ-like erosion. Before touchscreen became popular, mouse, keyboard, earphone along with microphone are the connections through which we gain and transform information. Through decomposing these objects surrounding the monitor and turned them into mini-sculptures, throughout which process, the original functions of these objects have been replaced. The contextualization of appearance refers to the high speed of elimination of old technologies.
