My work is to create a situation with surreal sounds that depicts contradiction and subconscious of human nature as I observe people including myself. Providing a fuction as a movie that people derive the inspiration from, I shorten the usual length to be one-minute instant video and directly emphasize the main topic of the story.

The recent ongoing project’’INSTANT CINEMA’’, is a typical model that I will firstly create featuring sound-based videos with no image but subtitles. Make every video has a blur story happening and is implying a status of human nature by sounds. Secondly, I make the videos fit into various street views by framing a real 16:9 frame-size red tape at the street and document it in one-minute long video, then edit and make the sound-based video go into the red tape frame inside the documentary video as the final work.

The part of document video will remain at the street and will be provided to discover by attaching the sticker with QR code, which has the video link, each one-minute long video will be distributed in this way at different kinds of location in New York city. The final work that combines sound-based video and document video will be on the website being watched and serving all videos’ map for audience to track.


In INSTANT CENIMA, I try to display an undertone, that the subconsciousness can only be seen when we pay attention on it. By being discovered of the videos in the street, audience can see the storied as I see the subconsciousness in my mind. In all videos, the color of the inside-frame and outside-frame are reversed, and it is to contrast the reality with the illusion of inner side in our mundane life view.
