Lin Shih-Chieh, born in Taiwan, is an artist and experimental filmmaker based in Taipei. He earned his MFA in Film and Video from California Institute of the Arts. His works focus on the theme of the interrelationship among media, personal memories, and histories. By the juxtaposition of sound and the found footage in his works, he invites the viewer to re-interpret the possibility of the imagery. His recent work A Short History of Decay has won the best experimental film and the best music design in Golden Harvest Awards, Taiwan, 2015, and has exhibited in various venues internationally.

Name the Color
n the test, the examinee answers what color he sees on the screen in front of him. The test video includes three parts: 1) cognition about color 2) personal memory and color 3) stereotype about color. The answer might varies from one person to another, but the answer does not actually matter. The “judge” ultimately decides whether the examinee has the correct answer.
