This is a double projection video installation with a narrative similar to a confession or indictment, simultaneously voicing the minute but resolute will of the narrator. In the backdrop of the coastal line, nature and avatars of women, the video alludes to the long-term land development issues induced by racial, cultural and economic differences. Through combination, implication, blank-out or fragmentation of images and literary texts (language), it aims to manifest the politics of land identification in a daily but nonetheless mysterious atmosphere.

For me, the video cannot exist on its own. The significance of the shooting process comes no less to the final production, inferring to the fact that each interaction and life experience are equally important to the video itself. Because each of these sparks in everyday life influence memory, concept and the shooting process, which eventually evolve into a ceaselessly accumulating and altering body. In addition, the years of shuttling between the city and the tribe—the physical shift in dimension—has often produced subtle alterations in both physicality and mentality. The increased sensitivity to the environment has also enabled one’s imagination, cognition and status quo to be in constant agitation. Therefore, if we neglect the details and clues in the process, then the video would have lost its meaning, even if it unlocks several topics and dialogues in its irreversibly self-contained state.
