The Outlook Magazine | 梦语人

Posted on Oct 1, 2010

by Pinko Chao original article – October, 2010 “你的眼睛疲倦了,累了,闭上你的眼睛……” 上世纪末,一位神经科医生在维也纳议会街上的小诊所里,解救了数以百计的被幻觉绑架的人,你一定猜到了,这位医生是弗洛伊德。就在之后的十几年间,那本无人不知无人不晓的惊世骇俗之作《梦的解析》面世。 梦,让人又爱又恨的东西。它可能是你不愿面对的潜意识的映射,也可能是人类发展的催化剂。卡梅隆用少时的梦境创造了《阿凡达》,而纽约艺术家Alex Dodge则试图将当今炙手可热的社交媒体移植到梦的深处。 这并不是件容易的事情,正如苏联曾联合本国精英开发时间机器一样,想在梦里实现种种属于现实范畴的事情,必要联合高科技的力量。于是Alex Dodge找到了布鲁克林的高科技设计团队Gernerative一同造梦。 他们设计了一系列概念性的服饰原型,希望让人以安静的方式参与到非积极的交互之中。例如名为“梦语人”(sleep talker)的头套就可以让两个或多个用户在相似的睡眠状态中互动,或将某个人的无意识体验广播到一个专门的社交网络中,简而言之,就是让你在梦中也能玩社交。这个安置了复杂程序的头套可以监测使用者的脑电波、心跳频率和环境音效等,混合各种实时视听数据,使用户在睡梦中对话。失眠的人也不再孤单,旁听他人谈话或许可以缓解痛苦,说不定能更快入梦。你只需通过类似地理方位、信号过滤、谈话内容与搜索难易度为特征的分析工具找到“梦语人小组”(dream clusters)即可。 在科技大举进军的今天,现实和虚拟的界限越来越模糊。在享受科技带来的便利的同时,我们也会不由得产生这样的疑虑:“我不知道哪个世界更真实。”(撰文_pinko)
