Director Statement

When creating this little film, I had strong curiosity to explore connections in life and I want to research how could I integrate film and dance together.

I basically did everything except dancing it myself, from beginning to design the structure of the film , then to generate materials of the choreography and rehearsing in the studio, then convert it into the location where I want to shoot.

Change of seasons for me is a strong symbol of time. I tried to engage the diversity of time in related to season, temperature and humidity.
