Everything Without a “Real” is False

2015 

Everything Without a "Real" is False originally appears on a tutorial of w3schools as in a principle of javascript programming — when Boolean a variable that is not “Real” (i.e. undefined, zero, minus zero, empty string, etc.), it returns “False”. Intrigued by the fact that this sentence becomes abstruse yet significative when extracted out of original context, Xuan Ye’s residency at Being Generations continues its ongoing interest in the limitation of knowledge and memory, how virtuality and reality are intertextualized through its performances and installations.
