ABSTRACT

We as humans desire to be recognized of our being. We hope to be loved and cherished forever by our close friends, and even hope to remain in history for general others. Individuals with great and small desires come together to form a society and create countless events. The human desire for the immortality has driven the lives of individuals and has written history by repeating transition and progress. In the near future, one's memories and experiences for a lifetime accumulated in the brain continue to stay in future generations and physically exist as they are stored in the cloud by artificial intelligence. In such a world, promising life after death, what role does religion will maintain after it has perdured eternal time? What about human records and history? By analysing the characteristics of storytelling structure revealed in the art works in the exhibition Immortality in the Cloud, this essay observes how history is newly being conventionalized under conditions of contemporaneity. And, particularly, it aims to explore how historical, ethnic, and cultural characteristics are being “rewritten” in the present day where the encounter among different cultures, religions, and languages has been intensified.
