* Collaboration project with JingYin Luo * Short Experimental film * To tell the people living 100 years later how the world was like in 2019. Envisioned a future where every individual lives within a metaphorical “box”, with no physical interaction with one another, while the world is full of AI robots that look exactly like human beings. The purpose of the film is to explore the beauty of human interactions in current public spaces and to emphasize the feelings of human existence to people 100 years later.

Optical 19

Optical 2019, Video, 1:09, 21/08/2019 (Video by me and JingYin Luo) This short film acts as the content of an immersive time capsule of 2019 for people from 100 years later to watch. This experiential experience explores the beauty of the contemporary cityscape with the physical existence and interactions of human beings. By capturing fragmental live-action documentations of people within the metropolis, the project aims to offer an opportunity for the spectators to reflect on the influences that computer and artificial intelligence bring, also to rebuild a physical community of those with a common interest.

Optical 19 VR prototype & Event record

Optical 2019_VR prototype & Event record, video, 00:38, 16/05/2019 (This video edited by Cynthia) We visioned our film to be view in the elevator 100 years later because we think cities will develop vertically. So the first part of this video is a prototype of how it will work (using VR to simulate the experience). The second part is the record of our collaboration with Yukari and David. We came up with an event called "Hello Neighbourhood", in which people were invited to have a quick dinner in the elevator and our film will be view at the same time, all together creating an immersive experience for the participants.
