HDD Spiritual Essentials:

HDD精神精华元素

Fire

“Fire” not only represents our passions, compulsions, zeal, creativity, motivations, but also our restrictions, as in the Great Fire Wall.. The Element of Fire has great power for forging will and determination. Unlike other mediocre digital detox methods which encourage embracing a camp fire, here at HDD, “Fire” represents the Spiritual strategy of the branding: “Fight fire with fire”/“以毒攻毒”. We will show you how to use digital means to fight back at your digital problem!


“火” 不但象征着人类的激情,魄力,热情,创造力和动力, 也象征着禁忌,比如防火墙。火这个元素具有使意志力和决心炉火纯青的力量。 与其他平庸的数据排毒方法,即樂於鼓吹拥抱在大自然中露营的篝火之火不同在于,在HDD, “火”所代表的是品牌的精神策略:以牙还牙,以毒攻毒。我们會向你展示如何用数字的方式向数码时代的问题开火。

Uni-Donk

独角驴

“The Uni-Donk” is the spiritual animal for the brand, resulting from the union of a unicorn and a donkey. A “unicorn” is a privately held startup company valued at over $1 billion. Most of the unicorns are tech companies from the United States and China. A Uni-Donk is 50% Innocence and  50% stubbornness..


“独角驴”是品牌的精神动物,来自於“独角兽”和驴的结合。“独角兽”往往用来形容估值达到10亿美元以上的初创企业。大部分的“独角兽”来自於美国和中国的科技公司。“独角驴”同时拥有独角兽的无辜和驴的任性。

Cookie

曲奇

“Cookie”, is the curse of our personalization algorithm age. It is a small piece of data, sent from a website, and stored on your computer by your web browser while you are browsing. Your cookie knows you better than you know yourself, but don’t worry, we will show you our genius method of how to backfire your cookie.


“曲奇”是我们所在的这个个性化算法时代的诅咒。曲奇是当你再浏览网站的时候,网站为了辨别用户身份而储存在用户本地终端上的数据。你的曲奇因为记载着你的数据,往往比你自己更了解你自己。但是别怕,我们会教你怎样用我们的天才办法来反击你的曲奇。

ONLINE RETREAT

#Stonesfromotherhillsmayservetopolishthejadeofthisone

来自亲特网的在线隐居
—他山之石,可以攻玉

To create an experience that gives individuals the freedom and permission they need to truly unplug and decompress, participants put aside their digital arm to recharge, gain perspective, and reevaluate their relationship with digital technology. Here at HDD, You need to be connected to disconnected. You need a fire wall.


为了创造一个能够给予个体自由,一种真正不连线的减压体验,一般的数据排毒中的隐居环节会让参与者参加野外露营,并没收所有电子设备,通过这种强迫隐居使参与者获取新的视角,并重估他们与电子科技之间的关系。而在HDD, 你可以通在线来达到离线的目的。你需要的是一座防火墙。

  • Download and install your preferred VPN’s software from its website. Let’s use PureVPN as an example (see picture below). After you have opened up PureVPN’s VPN desktop client (for Mac in this example), you can choose “Select Purpose” from the main dashboard, then click on the search box and then click on “Entertainment Channels” and then click on “China”. At this point you can start connecting to PureVPN’s China server and get a China IP address. 从你所选择的VPN服务器网站下载并安装软件。让我们以PureVPN为例(见下图),当你打开了PureVPN的桌面软件(图片Mac系统为例),从“选择目的”的选项里,点击搜索按钮,然后点“娱乐频道”,从中选择“中国”。此时你已经开始连接PureVPN在中国的服务其并且获取了一个中国的IP地址。


 



 

 


 

 

 


 

  • Navigate to the website that you want to use.

    然后你就可以开始浏览你想浏览的网站了。

  • Breathe a sigh of relief, and enjoy full, restricted access to western websites and online services, all thanks to your versatile and highly useful China IP address. Now, experience the retreat without Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Snapchat, Picasa, WordPress.com, Blogspot, Blogger, Flickr, SoundCloud, Google+, Google Hangouts, Hootsuite, Google Play, Whatsapp, Telegram, Line, Periscope, KaKao Talk,Youtube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Nico Video, The New York Times, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Bloomberg, Reuters, The Independent, LeMonde, L’Equipe, Netflix, Google News, many pages of Wikipedia, Wikileaks, Google Drive, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Calendar (generally all Google services), Dropbox, ShutterStock, Slideshare, Slack, iStockPhotos, WayBackMachine, Scribd, Xing, Android, and many VPN sites, all porn sites.
    现在,你可以松一口气,并享受这个完整的,充满荆棘的西方网站和网上服务之旅。这一切要感谢这个多才多艺的超级有用的中国IP地址。现在,你不用跑到深山老林里去参加露营,就可以开始享受在线隐居所而了,这是一个没有Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Snapchat, Picasa, WordPress.com, Blogspot, Blogger, Flickr, SoundCloud, Google+, Google Hangouts, Hootsuite, Google Play, Whatsapp, Telegram, Line, Periscope, KaKao Talk,Youtube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, Nico Video, The New York Times, Financial Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Bloomberg, Reuters, The Independent, LeMonde, L’Equipe, Netflix, Google News, many pages of Wikipedia, Wikileaks, Google Drive, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Calendar (基本上是所有的Google产品), Dropbox, ShutterStock, Slideshare, Slack, iStockPhotos, WayBackMachine, Scribd, Xing, Android, 许多 VPN供应商,以及所有色情网站的在线隐居.



ATTENTION: China has been actively cracking down on VPNs. Domestic VPNs within China have been the worst affected. However, even some international VPNs that have endpoint servers in China (Chinese IP addresses) have suffered a loss of their servers. This is a fluid and ongoing battle of wills. Because of the ongoing climate, it is always worth clicking through to the VPN to ask if they still have servers in China.

注意:中国一直积极封锁VPN服务商。中国本地的VPN服务商受影响最为严重。而然,一些国际VPN服务商在中国的端点也与服务器失联。这是一场持续而长久的意念战. 在这种大气候下,我们建议你最好事前先询问和确认你的VPN供应商是否还有在中国的伺服器。

Analog Art

#drawaselfie #findyourpeaceinstonestackingsculpture

模拟信号艺术
#画一张自拍像
#在垒石头雕塑里找到内心的平衡

Without the ability to “Command Z” undo, analog art gives participants the ability to create spontaneously; what we do can not be deleted or erased. Simply enjoy the nostalgia of hands-on-crafts as an interesting way to bring out the child in you. Try phone-free-food, draw a selfie, make a stone stacked sculpture. Existential discussions about “undo” are sure to arise.


由於无法像数字软件那样拥有 “Command Z /撤销 ”的权利,模拟信号艺术反而给予了我们创造意想不到的偶发效果的可能;在模拟信号里,我们所做的无法被删除或擦去。简单的怀一下旧,享受手工的乐趣,找回消失已久的童心吧。比如试试在吃饭的时候不看手机,画一个自拍像,做一个垒石头雕塑。关於“撤销”这个功能的存在必要,肯定会被质疑。


Creativity in general can help put us in touch with our inner selves. If we are more in touch with ourselves, we can become more in touch with other people.


一般来说,创造力可以帮助我们接触到内在自我。如果我们与自己的接触多了,就可以更多的接触到他人。


Technology when used as an aid strengthens us but when used as a crutch, can weaken us.


技术,当作为一种辅助手段使用时,可以增强我们的力量,当作为拐杖而使用的时候,却会削弱我们的力量。

Backfire Your Cookie!

#bebipolar

装疯卖傻,让你的曲奇走火入魔

Cookie is the curse of the Personalization Algorithm Age. It is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on your computer by your web browser while you are browsing. Your cookie knows you better than you know yourself— but don’t worry, we will show you our genius method of how to use a cookie to fight a cookie.

曲奇是我们所在的这个个性化算法时代的诅咒。曲奇是当你浏览网站时,网站为了辨别用户身份而储存在使用者电脑上的资料。你的曲奇因为记载着你的数据,往往比你更了解你自己。但是别怕,我们会教你怎样用我们的天才办法来反击你的曲奇。

The best way of stopping a cookie from creating a filter bubble based on your online behavior, is to confuse your cookie.

要让你的曲奇停止使用你的数据来创造更多过滤气泡的办法,最好的办法是反其道而行之,以一反常态的在线行为模式迷惑你的曲奇。

Act like a maniac in front of your cookie.
也就是在你的曲奇面前装疯卖傻。


Click on things that you usually hate just so your cookie will have the wrong data.

点击一些你平时不会点的链接,甚至是你所憎恨或不赞成的东西,这样你的曲奇就会记录下关于你的错误的数据。

In pattern recognition, the K-Nearest Neighbors Algorithm (k-NN) is a non-parametric method used for classification and regression. It’s a type of instance-based learning, or lazy learning, where the function is only approximated locally and all computation is deferred until classification.

在行为模式识别系统中,最近邻算法(K-NN),是一种用于分类和回归的無母數統計方法.K-NN是一种基于实例的学习,或者是局部近似和将所有计算推迟到分类之后的惰性学习。其中函数仅在本地以近近似值出现,并且所有的计算要推迟到分类后进行。

Inspired by the k-NN algorithm that applies to your cookie, we discovered that you can also trade your phone with others. Try people who are not your friends/nearest neighbors, and even people who you dislike or disagree with.
受到运用在你的曲奇上的K-NN算法的启发,我们发现你也可以和别人交换手机,试试那些不是你的朋友/最近邻的人,甚至挑选那些你不喜欢或老是意见不合的人交换,这样你的手机就会记录下与你的行为模式相反的信息。


Surprise, Cookie!

等着吧!曲奇!

In real life
On Baidu Map
In real life
On Baidu Map

Our reliance on Google Maps is reducing our natural ability to find our own way.  When we use Google Maps we remember less about the places we go, and put less work into generating our own internal picture, or "mental map", of the world.
我们对于Google地图的依赖,已令我们与生俱来寻找自我之路的能力退化。当我们在使用Google地图的时候,我们不再记得我们要去的地方,久而久之,这种依赖也使投放更少精力在绘制内心画像和寻找精神世界地图之上。

With Baidu Map, you may, from time to time, for unknown reasons, experience despair trying to reach your destination., but that is the beauty of it. You start to ask the strangers around you for routes: Baidu, a conversation starter.

当你在使用百度地图的时候,你可能会发现你的目地原因不明的从地图上消失,这正是百度地图的魅力所在。因此,你开始向身边的陌生人问路。百度,沟通使者。

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is what we can do:

  • Set yourself the target of a spot on the horizon.

  • Take out your smart phone and open "”Baidu Maps"

  • Follow your spot until it disappeared on"Baidu Maps"

  • Use your own in-built navigational abilities.

  • Get out of your comfort zone.

  • Ask a real person for routes.

  • See what you discover about yourself along the way.

 

你可以这样做:

  • 想象一个目的地

  • 带着你的智能手机打开“百度地图”

  • 跟随“百度地图”走,直到地图上的点消为止

  • 使用你自带的方向感

  • 冲出你的舒适区

  • 向真人问路

  • 看看这一路下来,你对自己有什么新认识

Google Is A Conversation Killer

IRL (In Real Life)  #FightFireWithFire

在现实中
以毒攻毒

 
 

“Hardcoreorganicdigitaldetox” is hardcore for a reason. We fight fire with fire. Inspired by the “How China” program uses virtual reality as a means to help drug addicts turn their lives around, we figured that the best way to help you get away from the virtual world is by getting into it even more— using virtual reality.
“硬核数据排毒”之所以是“硬核”是有其原因的。我们以毒攻毒,以牙还牙。受一个使用虚拟现实来治疗瘾君子的项目由“How China”所启发,我们发现最好的摆脱虚拟世界的办法,就是通过更深入的进入虚拟世界达到物极必反的效果。

“Happily Contained” is a VR piece narrated by a meditation style voice over, describing the connections of Lifestyle branding, politics, and “unicorn” tech companies, how they are intertwined. Lifestyle brands are all about self-expression because of post materialism. It shows that one is part of a group by the way they live and through the culture they want to identify with. The way people interact with social media on a daily level is often about expressing oneself in such a way that identifies with a specific group or culture, especially in the age of the Personalization Algorithm. Under the filter bubble you will only see your group, which triggers the people to become more extreme and unhappy with center politics which can be seen as boring, slow, and unwilling to change with the times. The sense includes Trump's border wall, Chinese internet great fire wall, algorithm filter bubble utopian, nostalgic American dream, Tech company monsters, etc

“Happily Contained”是一件虚拟现实作品,温柔的旁白叙事中,讲述了样板化的生活方式传销、被社交媒体算法深度侵蚀下的政治环境与独角兽技术公司的泡沫之间的关系。所谓“生活方式品牌”就是一种因为后现代物质主义而产生的一味追究自我表达。生活方式品牌”体现了人们通过寻找文化和身份认同来寻找归属感。尤其是在这个个性化算法的年代,人们日常与社交媒体交流的方式一般都是关于自我表达,这种自我表达往往是人们对某一种特殊集体或者文化的认知。在过滤气泡中,你只会看到自己的集体,这使得人们对中立的政治观点更加不关心,因为与极端的政治观点相比,它们看上去更无聊,而不是立竿见影。作品里包括了特朗普的墙,中国互联网防火墙,算法滤镜气泡的乌托邦,怀旧美国梦,独角兽科技公司的算法怪兽等等。
