The computers, before being applied as a communication and media device, were mainly developed as a cipher/decipher apparatus for messages in history.  This work recreate an experience of decoding messages on a console station , through a combination of imaginative storytelling and interaction .

Several codes were placed around the Asia Society site. Besides, several digital images with historical references were put inside this machine. Hints of the location is given on the operation document. The operator can access the prints from the console by entering the correct passcode.

special thanks to Leo, Chung, & Kel making this set possible in terms of materials and form.

電腦,在應用在傳訊和媒體工具前,主要被開發用於加密及解密的用途。透過想像的故事和互動,這作品是一部再造其經驗的機台。

數組密碼被放在Asia Society場地內。同時地,數張相關的圖像在機器之內。地標的題示在旁邊的操作文件內。操作員可輸入正確的字碼令機台打印圖像。
