Visual + Audio Storytelling
- REMIX -
i have something to tell you
Collecting and rearranging sound materials related to Revolutionary War, Slavery, Civil War, Vietnam War, Terrorism, I try to form a narrative. Just like a circle – it starts with hope and fighting for right, but right leads to war which leads back into challenge.

I adopted the "cut-up" method to get rid of the limitation of time and space, creating a fresh new context for the audience. Putting separate historical events into the same frame could strengthen the sense of narrative and in the meanwhile create sharp contrast. For instance, in my remix, fight for independence in colonial America is juxtaposed next to slavery advertisement, and the report on American’s attack on Iraq and terrorism are put together. Such a remix, I believe, can be more thought-provoking.
