Basically, the video content of this work is a reflection on my own experience and a little summary of my life that has been divided into four parts, which are born, shape, learn and reconfigure with a hierarchical structure. Each of the stages represented its own meaning. It implied a circle of our life.

 

To convey the multicultural experience through art form can get rid of the language boundaries because art should not be distinguished by language. Every art form can compose their own unique language. Therefore, my work became a communication of different cultures that represent some kind of stuff that you cannot really put into words and more focus on visual and sensory impact.

 

At the same time, I used sound and music to complement the deficiency of no dialogue. The music in this video was remixed by myself with Chinese instrument elements. All the sound are post-produced based on the meaning that I want to create for the video. I also applied many metaphor and symbolism as my auteur theory in this video.
