mourning : Extended dialogue of Me Myself

This is a my own ceremony of condolence. This is a ceremony of a relationship. This is a ceremony of a village. This is a ceremony of a city. Me Myself both are me, and with the same world, without the linkage of ‘and’. To distinguish the response between behaviour and body action. I induce the video image as a chaos agent through unconscious text. At the same time, I found the automatic linkage between image and text, surprised me, I am chilled. (I have to say that this lingering mourning is the terminal of negative, time to perk and stand on your own feet.

Still a student. Name, age, texts, languages, or nationality cannot define me. It will take time for me to do all the experiments I need. I’m always looking forward to something or someone that absorbs me. Tell me something.

Director Statement

this is a funeral of "me myself". I use my personal emotion of my sadness to extend to my sadness of society. This is the same sadness because "me myself" belong to this world , we do not need any conjunction to link .

"To lose myself"- zhuang zi. Before doing this video, i suffered a enormous pain from relationship. Due to i want to make a video about myself , I decide to be alone when i doing this video. While doing this video, i closed facebook and whatsapp and stay at home to face loneliness. (Except go to school) Definetly, i feel extremely loneliness. When i finished first draft cut of my video, i started to meet my friend, and i heard a bad news which made me depressed again. That was a horrible experience , i cannot find any meaning of my life. I cannot tell what my feeling in words.

So, for this video, i treat it as my recovery process and discovery of myself. I also find many connection between my words, body movement, sound unconsciously during making this video, especially the editing progress. I believe i got at least two me , one of me is myself now who doing this video. When i editing, i am finding what another me want to show to me to show to you. I think it is a internal discovery.
