The Visible Story
In this video, I selected 60 images of people according to my personal preference. These people had somehow disappeared for some reasons from the grand narrative of the world history, and have reappeared in texts now or have still remained mysterious. These "invisible" images of people were partly retrieved from classical books and partly from inexpensive online resources. I recreated a fictitious story for these 60 roles through animation. The story began with a stretching exercise in a beau ...

The Adventures in Mount Yu V
In this video, I pieced together classical images and footages gathered from historical and online resources to create a personal, fictional narrative of Taiwan's colonial history. Through this collage-like historical narrative, I attempted to convey a message: history was an illusion created through an amalgamation of knowledge fragments. Additionally, the artwork was a metaphor for the relationship between knowledge and power. The video began with Foucault sitting and pondering on deep thou ...

Who Cares About The Real
This work appropriated a photo of a sumptuous banquet that took place before the G8 summit that was supposed to discuss the food crisis in Japan. It was published in The Guardian last summer. In a seemingly happy and theatrical way, it satirized the bubble way of life in the First World countries when facing the food crisis. Exquisite and intricate, with a focus on handwork, appropriation of images and low-budget, it is presented in a visually pretentious, ostentatious, and highly decorative ...

Another Beautiful Day
This frame-by-frame animation began with an innocent, colorful, and fiction-like view in a utopian world. However, when the people were attacked by a sudden bombing, the scenario became more and more ridiculous and out of control. It eventually turned into a nightmare mixed with sex and violence. In general, the video built up an imaginative world in a typical animation invested with its innocence and merriment, which was later destroyed by a calamity of sudden disillusion, the interference o ...
