Is there a transparent landscape co-existing with every ordinary scene that we are familiar with in our daily life?

From perspectives and camera obscura to AR and VR of the present day, the angles and dimensions which we adapt to view the world keep expanding as modern technology continues to advance. Moreover, the world that used to be perceived through physical senses, such as vision and hearing, inevitably takes on a new look as it marches relentlessly towards digitalization. It is transformed into a world constructed by myriads of bits and bytes and data adjustment—a world that our physical senses fail to perceive (or are not conscious of). How should we confront ourselves with the unseen? How can we interpret the nexus between data and signals and the meaning of their combination? What kind of world does the unseen represent? I, for my part, would imagine it as a scape, a “transparent landscape” that co-exists with the real world.
