He thought, too, about his need for a real Frog; within him an actual hadred once more manifested itself toward his electric frog, which he had to tend, had to care about, as if it lived. The tyranny of an object, he thought. It doesn't know I exist. Like the androids, it had no ability to appreciate the existence of another. He had never thought of this before, the similarity between an electic animal and an andy. The electric animal, he pondered, could be considered a subform of the other, a kind of vastly inferior robot. Or, conversely, the android could be regarded as a highly developed, evolved version of the ersatz animal. Both viewpoints repelled him.

This project explores the boundary of existence, in both virtual and actual term.  It focuses on the possibility of digitalization and duplication and its impact on human realizatoin of life and being. How to define a electric frog if it is purely based on and made from the digial world and does it still mainstain that subtle connection with its origin in our visible and sensible dimension? Such crisis of realizatoin looms when we step into the age of digitalization and informationalization.
