I used DALL.E to create a "look of a person (turtle neck, tunnel syndrome, etc.) who is immersed in a digital environment and suffers from diseases caused by multiple digital machines." I have seen many articles or news about new human body deformations or pain caused by digital tasks, such as frequent computer and smartphone use. Furthermore, I have also sometimes felt a little pain from using digital devices in the wrong posture. I was interested in this work topic to think about the power of the rapid development of technology in human society. The continuous transformation was repeated to obtain an image like a character (like a scene from an animation) on the monitor by choosing one of the four options produced this way. Interestingly, as people experiment with images using this program, the appearance of humans suffering from digital diseases is transformed into a pose with their hands on their chest as if they were loyal to somewhere, which is impressive. In addition, as the video progresses, the images that become more grotesque can be seen, allowing us to think in many ways about the negative effects beyond the convenient effects of technology.
