“Intrusion” is a digital archaeological study of the invasion of the Taiwanese server by Chinese netizens in World of Warcraft, which caused delays and congestion on the server due to the censorship of the Chinese game that caused players to move to the Taiwanese server as a guild, and also allowed players from different regions to interact and connect in the heterotopias constructed by the game and reality. The video content uses character models representing Chinese censorship as symbols, and uses the game engine and flocking AI algorithm to create a large number of aggregated character models unconsciously pumping with a sense of impact and influx of human flow, and the scenes use base models, untextured maps and intentionally broken images to try to think about what digital ruins, abandoned areas of cyberspace, and unoccupied server states are.
