Deploying a clumsy time and space travel, I tries to create a hyper-reality of memory, dreams, personal politics and social issues behind her low-tech kino-eyes. Working with my family, it is a glimpse from a long distance at the magical realism of daily life in Taiwan. Through filming the living area in real world also via narrative, images, sounds and space installation, family videos and experimental documentaries, I want to engage audience to rethink their independence and feeling towards their everyday life.
