Simulated Earth is about the hydraulic model that my father works on. It‘s the scaled-down model used to simulate ocean currents, docks, etc. Humans become god at specific time and space to recreate the nature that can be controlled by them. I went to model halls with my father. He explains to me the purpose and principles of each experiment. I don't know much about hydraulic engineering, but I understand what I am looking at and my father. This scientific experiment is a simulation of the earth we live in, just as photography is a replica of reality.
