lololol is a boundless laughter, an endless extension of lol (laugh out loud), an acronym that appears to be constructed by the building blocks of I-Ching and/or computer code. Founded by Xia Lin and Sheryl Cheung in 2013, the artist collective focuses on how emotions and body politics are informed by diverse technology cultures, with special interest in martial arts and Tao-informed philosophies. Their scope of technological interests ranges from ancient knowledge of martial arts, medicine to all kinds of contemporary inventions. “Future Tao” is the group’s ongoing initiative to engage with Taoist mind and body practices as an alternative approach to technological exploration.

lololol 是循環的笑聲,0與1構成無盡陰陽變化,同時演示電腦語言的基礎脈動。lololol 時而喜出望外、暗自竊喜、或喜怒不形於色。lololol 悠遊於虛實之間的地平線上,不受限於制定的文化邏輯或角色扮演,時而發出的滄海一聲笑。由藝術家林亭君和張欣於2013共同發起,作為藝術團體主要關心科技生活中的身體政治,借鏡道家思想相關科技論去重新思考我們所身處的世界秩序。
