The Book of Distance

English/No subtitles

Duration 25 minutes


In 1935, Yonezo Okita left his home in Hiroshima, Japan, and began a new life in Canada. Then war and state-sanctioned racism changed everything—he became the enemy. Three generations later, his grandson, artist Randall Okita, leads us on an interactive virtual pilgrimage through an emotional geography of immigration and family to recover what was lost.

Afterimage for Tomorrow

Mandarin/No subtitles

Duration 19 minutes


Welcome to the Afterlife Memory Trust.  With us, you will be selecting three pieces of your memories to relive by the time you decease. When your life terminates, we will stimulate your neurons to bring out the designated memories. Each vision lasts a light time.
We perceive the world through eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind. These sensory experiences are stored as memory in words, pictures, sounds and moving images. With fractions of the transcribed memories, we are capable of returning to a specific point in time, which is an act of distortion and overlaying of time and space. However memories aren't always reliable. A man wakes up in an unknown dimension of consciousness. What is it that he sees, hears and feels? Is it memory, virtual reality or terminal lucidity?
In Afterimage for Tomorrow, director Singing CHEN collaborates with choreographer CHOU Shu-yi to perform the ineffable in memories. This metafiction film sets in a futuristic world, where memories can be uploaded and perpetuated, thus leads to the discussion of what in life is worth storing. Persistence of Vision; when an object in rapid motion vanishes from sight, human brain creates a 0.1-0.4 seconds of optical illusion. How long will the images and memories we create today live in the future?

A Song Within Us

Mandarin and AmisMandarin and English subtitles

Duration 16 minute


Written and directed by Fangas Nayaw, a Taiwan Amis indigenous theater director and choreographer, A Song Within Us is a sound-interactive VR experience with Ambisonic audio, and incorporates elements of traditional indigenous music.
After a stage rehearsal of Song of Tafalong, the director is summoned back to his tribe, where he is greeted by a lush forest and warm sunlight, enjoying the birds' chirping, the wind's gentle caress, and all the nature's wonders. Everything he hears and sees is Vuvu ("grandparents" in the Paiwan language, also means the spirits of ancestors), who is directing him, guiding him into sweet memories and the land's warm embrace. Will he be able to retrace his long-forgotten memories, and find his way home again?

Duration 15 minute


Artist LI Yi-ho created a VR embodied experience that allows viewers to roam around in a kitchen as a cockroach. In addition to the VR content, motion-sensing equipment that mimic a cockroach's antennae, wings and cerci are added to simulate the feedback mechanism used by cockroaches to sense the surroundings. In this project, viewers will meet other creatures living in the kitchen, and have surprise encounters with humans.

The project showcases the results of his 30-year exploration of "body performance", presenting a dancer's thought process from within, as well as the relationship between the body, substance and non-substance. From the entrance of VR, the audience can choose from 6 pieces of panoramic videos, including 3 sections of physical performance in Shapde5.5 , and 3 pieces of improvisations. In the panoramic video, the audience can change to another perspective by selecting. With this new and unlimited viewing experience, this project provides a possible solution of archiving "body" and "movement".

The PetriDish

No language


If our mind can be transmitted and re-presented, is it possible that humans are just trapped in a virtual machine?
The PetriDish is an interactive installation system. The moment when the experiencer puts on a VR headset, a piece of mind will be transmitted to the installation. The participant can walk around and explore freely in the space, with his/her field of vision following the same direction inside the installation. In the process, the participant will gradually recognize the new space constitutes the reality.
However, as the participant's viewpoint moves to the border, triggering the surrounding glass to become transparent, the external world will be revealed, and the participant will see the views outside and himself. At this moment, the mind is inside the installation, while the body is on the outside. Perplexed as to the separation of body and mind, the participant goes on to realize that the world is a constructed virtual machine, and we still don't know the real source of our mind.

*Note: The VR project is free of charge. Please follow staff instructions and line up. Viewers need to remain standing during the process, and are allowed to walk around in the designated area for an optimal viewing experience.
