The work discusses the impact on animals from human behaviours. The main focus here is on the category of pigs. Unlike other animals we used as food, the whole body of pigs can be eaten in China. Consumerism's influence separates the creature's meaning of pig from the context of meat. What we eat actually lost the creature meaning of pig, which is no longer embedded into the meat. Through the fragmented bodied under the barcode, I selected five parts of pig and plan to hack the barcode scanner to interact with these objects to see more possibilities. I am trying to fill the absence of the pig with this interactive virtuality.
