About Hardcore Digital Detox" (HDD)
www.hardcoredigitaldetox.com is a strategic brand and concept website commissioned by Hong Kong’s M+ Museum. The series revolves around the artist's concept brand "Hardcore Digital Detox" (HDD), showcased in the form of VR devices, video, oil paintings and sculptures, all derived from HDD concept strategy website.
It appears that people need to escape the control of technology more than ever. The popular "data detox", a process that restricts the usage of electronic networking devices such as smartphones and computers, has been touted as a new form of health maintenance in the information age. The concept brand "HDD (Hardcore Digital Detox)" is inspired by the lifestyle branding constantly generated in the post-material society. Those brands market their products by selling specific lifestyles. In this exhibition, Miao also adopts such an approach to distribute strategic lifestyle advice to the audience. The hardcore of HDD is the suggestion of a new, crude method of "fighting fire with fire" data detoxification to achieve unexpected therapeutic effects.
